FRESNO, Calif. — Andras Daniel Lee, 33, of Visalia, was sentenced today to four years and three months in prison for failure to register as a sex offender, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.

According to court documents, in March 2017, Lee was convicted in Tulare County, of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. Shortly after his release from prison, Lee moved to Liberal, Kansas. In March 2018, Lee moved back to California and intentionally did not register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) as was required as a result of his prior conviction for unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.

On Feb. 20, 2020, Lee committed a lewd act upon a child in Tulare County while in a failure-to-register status. On Dec. 20, 2021, Lee was convicted in Tulare County of two counts of committing a lewd act upon a child.

This case was the result of an investigation by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Antonio J. Pataca prosecuted the case.
