St. Louis Man Sentenced For Failure To Register As A Sex Offender

Tyrone H. Bailey, 56, of St. Louis, Missouri, was sentenced on July 11, 2014, in federal district court in East St. Louis, Illinois, for his failure to register as a sex offender, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today. Bailey was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison, five years of supervised release, ordered to pay $100 special assessment and a $300 fine.

Bailey moved back and forth from Missouri to Illinois between August 18, 2010, and November 19, 2013, failing to register within the three day requirement each time he changed his residence. The registration condition was due to his three count Statutory Rape conviction on November 17, 1995, in St. Louis County, Missouri.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals, who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
