An Illinois man moved to Michigan and failed to register in that state as a sex offender, violating the federal Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
Andrew C. Henley, 25, was sentenced Monday in federal court on one count of failing to register as a sex offender, according to Stephen R. Wigginton, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois in East St. Louis. He was sentenced to serve nearly three years in federal prison and five years of supervised release after he serves his sentence.
According to court documents, Henley registered as a sex offender on July 11, 2011, in Illinois then moved to Michigan without informing either state of the address change. On Aug. 23, 2011, Henley was arrested on a domestic assault charge after a fight with his girlfriend in Kalamazoo, Mich., and during the investigation, officers learned he had not registered as a sex offender in Illinois nor had he updated his sex offender registration in Michigan.
