North Carolina man sentenced for failing to update sex offender registration


CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Convicted sex offender Bruce Alfonso Robinson, II, 32, of Greensboro, North Carolina, was convicted and sentenced today to 24 months in prison for failing to update his sex offender registration status, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced.

Robinson was convicted of “Solicitation to Commit Second Degree Rape” in 2004 in the Superior Court of Guilford County, North Carolina. As a result of that conviction, he was required to register as a sex offender. He was further convicted of “Failure to Register as a Sex Offender” in the Circuit Court of Marion County, West Virginia in April 2011. Subsequently, Robinson relocated from West Virginia and returned to North Carolina without updating his sex offender registration status.

Robinson pled guilty today to one count of “Failure to Update Sex Offender Registration.”

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

U.S. District Judge Irene M. Keeley presided.
