Boston - A sex offender from Kentucky was sentenced today in federal court for failing to update his address and failing to register as a sex offender in Massachusetts.
Robert Lee Bowdre, 40, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Patti B. Saris to 18 months in prison to be followed by five years of supervised release.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael I. Yoon of Ortiz's Major Crimes Unit and Jennifer Serafyn of the Ortiz’s Civil Division.
