Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Darrell Lee
Roath, 43, of Portland, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Portland by Judge Nancy Torresen
to 15 months in prison and 5 years of supervised release for failing to register as a sex offender. Roath
pled guilty to the charges on August 29, 2012.
According to court records, in 1988 Roath was convicted in Texas of Indecency with a Child, a
crime that required him to register as a sex offender after his release from prison. Roath moved to
Maine in 2009 but failed to register as a sex offender in the state. When he was interviewed by
investigators in December of 2011, he acknowledged that he was required to register as a sex offender
in Maine but had not done so.
The investigation was conducted by the United States Marshals Service and the Scarborough
Training and seminars for Federal, State, and Local Law Enforcement Agencies.
