For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Maine

Portland, Maine:  United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Michael Larkin, 61, of Corpus Christi, Texas and formerly of Massachusetts, was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court by Judge Jon D. Levy to 15 months in prison and five years of supervised release for failing to update his sex offender registration in Maine and failing to register elsewhere.  He pled guilty on February 20, 2019. 

According to court records, Larkin was required to register as a sex offender in every state in which he resided as the result of a 1994 Massachusetts conviction for rape and abuse of a child under 16, assault with intent to rape a child under 16, indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  Between 2006 and 2017, Larkin registered as a sex offender in Massachusetts.  In September, 2017, Larkin moved to Maine, but failed to register until December, 2017.  Shortly thereafter, Larkin left Maine and resided in Alabama and Texas, but failed to register in either state.  He also failed to inform the Maine Sex Offender Registry that he left Maine.  He was arrested in Texas in June, 2018.

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