Virginia man pleads guilty to failing to update sex offender registration

MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Convicted sex offender Milton Stuart Kendall, Jr., 35, of Roanoke, Virginia, pled guilty in federal court in Martinsburg to failing to update his registration status, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced.

Kendall was previously convicted of “Sexual Battery” in the Circuit Court of the City of Staunton, Virginia. As a result of that conviction, Kendall is required to register as a sex offender. In late 2014 or early 2105, Kendall moved from West Virginia to Virginia and failed to update his sex offender registration.

Kendall pled guilty to one count of “Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.” He faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Anna Krasinski and Paul Camilletti prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The United States Marshals Service investigated.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert W. Trumble presided.
