Former Charleston man faces federal prison time
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A former Charleston man will spend 29 months in prison after failing to register as a sex offender in the state of Ohio.
Sam Bailey Jr. pleaded guilty U.S. District Court to violating a requirement under the federal Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act to register as a sex offender after moving to Columbus, Ohio in 2012, U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin announced today.
Goodwin said Bailey was on federal supervised release for an unrelated drug conviction at the time he failed to register as a sex offender. Goodwin said eight months of Bailey's sentence is for violating the terms of his release by failing to register.
Bailey was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Thomas E. Johnston.
