Convicted Sex Offender From Montgomery County Sentenced To Twenty-Five Months In Federal Prison For Second Federal Failure To Register Conviction
Montgomery, Alabama - Kevin H. Chambliss, of Montgomery, Alabama, was sentenced to twenty-five months in federal prison for failing to register as a sex offender, United States Attorney George L. Beck, Jr., announced today.
A federal grand jury indicted Chambliss in July 2012, for one count of failing to register and update a registration as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act after he traveled in interstate commerce in violation of federal law. According to court documents, Chambliss was convicted of one count of unlawful sexual activity with a minor in 2003 in Florida. Due to this conviction, Chambliss is required to register as a sex offender. During Chambliss’s guilty plea hearing in October 2012, he admitted that he was registered as a sex offender in Alabama and relocated to Florida. Chambliss further admitted that, after relocating to Florida, he knowingly failed to update his sex offender registration in Alabama.
This failure to register conviction marks Chambliss’s second federal conviction for failing to register. Court records indicate that Chambliss was convicted for the federal felony of failing to register in 2009. That conviction was based upon Chambliss relocating from Florida to Alabama and failing to register in Alabama. Chambliss was sentenced to ten (10) months in federal prison and five years of supervised release. While on supervised release, in 2012, Chambliss violated the terms of his supervision and was sentenced to eight (8) months in federal prison.
United States District Judge Myron H. Thompson sentenced Chambliss to twenty-five (25) months in federal prison to be followed by five years of supervised release. This twenty-five months sentence was ordered to run consecutive to the eight months sentence discussed above. Chambliss remains in the custody of the United States Marshals Service pending placement by the Bureau of Prisons.
This case was investigated jointly by the United States Marshals Service and United States Probation Office. Assistant United States Attorney Jerusha T. Adams prosecuted the case..
