MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Convicted sex offender Ronald Kisner, II, 30, of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 24 months in prison for failing to properly update his registration status, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced.

Kisner was convicted in November 2011 of “Abusive Sexual Assault” in the Northern District of West Virginia. As a result of that conviction, Kisner is required to register as a sex offender. He subsequently moved from West Virginia to Frederick County, Virginia without updating his sex offender registration. He pled guilty in August 2015 to one count of “Failure to Register.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Attorney Paul Camilletti prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The United States Marshals Service investigated.

Chief U.S. District Judge Gina M. Groh presided.
