Kentucky man charged with failing to register as sex offender
Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, announced today that Albert A. Davis, 44, of Paducah, Kentucky, was charged with failing to register as a sex offender.
The indictment charges that from on or about October 1, 2011, through on or about November 6, 2012, in the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, and elsewhere, Davis, who is required to register as a sex offender as a result of a 1995 conviction for child molestation, in Spokane County, Washington, traveled in interstate commerce and knowingly failed to register and update his registration as required by law.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence in this case will be determined by the court after consideration of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines which depend upon a number of factors unique to each case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the unique characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
This case is being prosecuted by Northern District of Ohio Assistant United States Attorney Carol M. Skutnik. The case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
