U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failing to Register or Update as a Sex Offender.

Shawn Allan Mackey, age 45, of Rockerville, was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 15, 2010, for Failure to Register or Update as a Sex Offender. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on April 4, 2011, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine. The charge is merely an accusation, and Mackey is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshal's Office, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman is prosecuting the case. Mackey was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has not yet been set.
