Columbia, South Carolina –--United States Attorney Bill Nettles stated today that Kenneth Joseph Eudy, age 31, of Concord, North Carolina, was sentenced this week in federal court in Florence, South Carolina, for failure to register as a sex offender. United States District Judge R. Bryan Harwell of Florence, sentenced Eudy to 17 months imprisonment and five years supervised release.
Evidence presented at the change of plea hearing established that Eudy was required to register as a sex offender due to a December 13, 1999, conviction in North Carolina of Indecent Liberties with a Child. Eudy had registered in North Carolina as required upon his release from prison but an investigation was begun by the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina, when it was discovered that Eudy was no longer residing at his registration residence. On March 13, 2011, Eudy was arrested for various offenses, including driving a stolen vehicle in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It was determined that Eudy had moved to South Carolina in February of 2011.
The case was investigated by agents of the United States Marshals Service. Assistant United States Attorney Bill Day of the Florence office prosecuted the case.
