BOSTON - A former Jamaica Plain man pleaded guilty in federal court today to Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.
Gary Dixon, 49, pleaded guilty to a one count indictment before United States District Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton. Dixon was indicted in August 2013 after his arrest in Maine. Sentencing is scheduled for June 4, 2014.
Dixon was previously convicted in Massachusetts state courts for Indecent Assault and Battery on a Child in 1988 and 1993, and for Open and Gross Lewd and Lascivious Behavior in 2003. As a registered sex offender, Dixon was required to promptly inform Massachusetts law enforcement authorities of any change in his residence or employment, as well as to appear in person, within three days, to the law enforcement authorities in any state to which he changed his residence. Dixon moved from his registered address in Jamaica Plain in the summer of 2012 without informing Massachusetts authorities. Beginning at least as early as January 2013, he primarily resided in Brunswick, Maine, without informing either Massachusetts or Maine law enforcement authorities. Dixon was attempting to start a landscaping business in Maine. He was arrested in Brunswick on July 19, 2013.
United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and United States Marshal John Gibbons made the announcement today. The case is being prosecuted by Victor A. Wild of Ortiz’s Economic Crimes Unit.
