Some of our Kentucky readers may have seen a previous post here that provided some details about what exactly the sex offender registry does in our state. Individuals who are required to be listed on this registry know who they are, and they know the requirements they are supposed to meet, such as informing a law enforcement agency of the fact that they have moved, for instance. Failure to meet the requirements of the sex offender registry can actually result in the individual being arrested for a new crime altogether: failure to register.
That appears to be what happened recently in Northern Kentucky, where a 23-year-old man was arrested after he was located in a train tunnel. The reports indicate that the suspect had originally had a sex crime conviction for a case involving a minor, and as a result he was required to list his information on the sex offender registry. It appears that the suspect was still on probation for the original charge as well.
