FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 26, 2010

PITTSBURGH, Pa. ‑ A former resident of Pittsburgh, Pa., has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh for failing to register as a convicted sex offender, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

The one‑count indictment names Donald Biby, 36, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, Biby was required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act after having been convicted in 2004 in Washington County, Indiana, of the felony sex offense of Child Molesting. The indictment states that between Feb. 1, 2010, and May 22, 2010, Biby traveled in interstate commerce and knowingly failed to register and update a registration, as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Craig W. Haller is prosecuting this case on behalf of the United States.

The United States Marshals Service and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
