Bowdoin Man Sentenced to Two Years for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender

Portland, Maine:  United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that David Forrest Noel, 40 of Bowdoin, Maine was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge D. Brock Hornby to two years in prison and five years of supervised release for failing to register as a sex offender.  Noel pleaded guilty on June 22, 2017.

According to court records, Noel was required by law to register as a sex offender because he was convicted in Massachusetts in 2010 of indecent assault and battery on a child.  After that conviction, Noel registered as a sex offender in Massachusetts.  He moved to Maine in 2016 and failed to notify appropriate authorities of the move and failed to register as a sex offender in Maine.

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