WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA — A sex offender who moved from Pennsylvania to West Virginia has been indicted in federal court for failing to register.

United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced that Charles R. LUNDIS, age 64, of Weirton, West Virginia, was charged with “Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.” LUNDIS faces up to 10 years in prison. LUNDIS has a prior conviction for “Rape” in Pennsylvania and is alleged to have failed to register as a sex offender after he moved to West Virginia in 2013.

This case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service and the West Virginia State Police. The case will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Stephen L. Vogrin.

An indictment is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
