Convicted Sex Offender Charged With Failing To Register
PITTSBURGH, Pa. ‑ A former Pittsburgh resident 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, returned on Jan. 4, 2011, names Kevin Dimpfl, 33, as the sole defendant.
According to the indictment, Dimpfl was required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act after having been convicted in 1998 in New York of the felony sex offense of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree. The indictment states that between March 2010, and September 29, 2010, Dimpfl 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, the Allegheny County Police Department, the Pittsburgh Police Department, and the Butte‑Silver Bow (Montana) Law Enforcement Department 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.
