Menominee County Man Indicted for Sex Offender Registry Violation

United States Attorney James L. Santelle for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on March 10, 2015, a federal grand jury returned a single count indictment against William A. Julius (age: 53) of Menominee County, Wisconsin, charging him with failure to update his registration as a sex offender pursuant to Title 18, United States Code, §2250(a). If convicted of this offense, the defendant faces a sentence of up to 10 years imprisonment, a two hundred and fifty thousand dollar fine, and between five years and a lifetime of supervised release. 

According to the indictment, Julius failed to comply with the requirements of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act which requires registered sex offenders to maintain information as to their current place of residency.        

The case was investigated by the United States Marshal’s Service. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble.

An indictment is only a charge and not evidence of guilt.  The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
