Sex offender arrested after submitting address forms late

When a person in Fairfield County has been convicted of a sex crime that conviction can bring about many serious consequences, not the least of which is being registered as a sex offender. Registered sex offenders are obligated to do several things, including updating their living status periodically. If they fail to comply, the court can impose additional consequences. However, not everyone who is late to turn in his or her card is trying to purposely evade the system.

A Wilton man who is a registered sex offender has been arrested again after authorities say he failed to comply with the conditions of his conviction. According to court papers, the 59-year-old man did not correctly submit his address verification forms to Connecticut State Police twice in the last six months. The man reportedly was late turning in his paperwork in both October of last year and February of this year.

By law, registered sex offenders must turn in an address verification card to authorities within 10 days after receiving it from State Police. The man turned his card in late in both of the aforementioned months and was arrested for sexual offender registration violations. He now faces two counts of failing to register as a sex offender.

It will be up to a judge to determine the consequences of this man’s actions. It appears that this man did in fact register as a sex offender, however, because he was allegedly late in doing so, he could face additional convictions. Anyone who is facing any kind of sex crime charge should take the charges very serious. He or she should also probably get the help of a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
