WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Pennsylvania sex offender Charles Lundis, 64, was sentenced today to 15 months in prison for failure to update his sex offender registration when he relocated to Weirton, West Virginia, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced today.

Lundis was convicted of “Rape” in Pennsylvania in September 1990. As a result, he is required to register as a sex offender. An investigation by the United States Marshals Service and the West Virginia State Police revealed that Lundis failed to register with the West Virginia Sex Offender Registry when he moved from Pennsylvania to Weirton in September 2013.

Lundis pled guilty in August 2014 to one count of “Failure to Register and Update Registration as a Sex Offender – SORNA.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve Vogrin prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

Senior U.S. District Judge Frederick P. Stamp presided.
