Portland, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Clyde M. Hall Jr., 50, most recently of Bangor, Maine, pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court for failing to register as a federal sex offender.

According to court documents, the defendant was required to register as a sex offender because of a 1989 Maine state conviction for unlawful sexual contact and gross sexual misconduct, a 1999 New York state conviction for endangering the welfare of a child, and a 2000 federal conviction in New York for possession of child pornography.
     
In March 2012, Hall was released from federal prison, but failed show up at an Albany, New York halfway house as he was directed.  A warrant issued for his arrest. 
     
On October 3, 2013, Deputy U.S. Marshals arrested Hall on Congress Street in Portland.  He told the marshals that he had been in Maine for the previous 18 months, mostly in the Bangor-Orono area, and that knew he was supposed to register, but did not.
     
Hall faces up to ten years in jail and a $250,000 fine.  He will be sentenced after completion of a presentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.
