Defendant Previously Convicted Of Sexual Assault Sentenced For Failing To Register As A Sex Offender

ALBANY, NEW YORK – ANDRE NADEAU, age 55, of New Haven, Connecticut, was sentenced yesterday by the Honorable Thomas J. McAvoy to 18 months in federal prison followed by 20 years of supervised release for failing to comply with the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (“SORNA”). The sentence follows NADEAU’s May 1, 2014 guilty plea.

SORNA, also known as the Adam Walsh Protection and Safety Act, requires that a convicted sex offender register where he or she resides, is employed, or is enrolled as a student, and to keep any registrations current.

NADEAU, who was convicted of sexual assault and designated a sex offender by Connecticut, registered with Connecticut in 2001. In 2005, NADEAU was found in Mississippi and convicted by a Mississippi court for failing to register as a sex offender. In 2012, NADEAU registered as a sex offender in Mississippi and signed documents acknowledging his duty to register. In 2013, NADEAU was found living in Albany, New York, and he had not registered or updated his sex offender registration with New York, Mississippi, or Connecticut.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Wayne A. Myers.
