Sex Offender Convicted Of Failing To Register

August 8, 2013

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Joseph P. DeMarco, 48, was convicted today of failing to register as a sex offender. DeMarco was convicted by a jury in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Alabama following a one-day trial. According to the evidence at trial, DeMarco was required to register as a sex offender following a 2003 conviction for Sex Abuse 1st Degree involving an eight-year old victim. Testimony at trial showed that DeMarco was employed in Louisiana and moved from his registered address in Mobile County, but failed to register as required in Louisiana or update his registration in Alabama.

DeMarco is scheduled to be sentenced December 6, 2013 by United States District Judge Kristi K. DuBose. He faces up to ten years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, and up to three years of supervised release following his release from prison.

The case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service and the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Maria Murphy handled the prosecution on behalf of the United States.
