Bridgeport Resident Arrested Pursuant to
Federal Indictment

 

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA — A 33 year old Bridgeport, Ohio, resident was arrested today pursuant to an Indictment returned by a Federal Grand Jury.

According to United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, MICHAEL RUNYON was named in a one-count Indictment charging him with “Failure to Update Sex Offender Registration.” The Indictment alleges that from January of 2013 to May of 2013, RUNYON knowingly failed to update a registration pursuant to the Sex Offender Notification Act. If convicted, RUNYON faces up to 10 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. This case will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David J.
