Greenbelt, Maryland – United States District Judge George J. Hazel sentenced Dennis Morgan, age 52, of Baltimore, Maryland, to 18 months in prison, 6 months of which are to be served in a halfway house, followed by 5 years of supervised release, for Failure to Register as a Convicted Sex Offender. 

 

The sentence was announced by Acting United States Attorney Stephen M. Schenning; Marshal Johnny Hughes of the United States Marshals Service and Chief James A. Cervera of the Virginia State Police.

 

Morgan is required to register as sex offender by reason of a 1996 conviction for Attempted Sexual Battery in Florida.    Between August 2016 and November 2016, he both resided and worked within the district of Maryland. Throughout that time period, he knowingly failed register as a sex offender in the state of Maryland.

 

Acting United States Attorney Stephen M. Schenning commended the United States Marshals Service and Virginia State Police for their work in the investigation. Mr. Schenning thanked Assistant United States Attorney Nadia Prinz and Joseph Baldwin, who prosecuted this case.
