ELKINS, WEST VIRGINIA – Convicted sex offender Charles D. Abrams, Jr., 33, was sentenced to one year and one day in prison for failure to update his sex offender registration, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced today.

Abrams was convicted in June 2001 in Norfolk, Virginia of carnal knowledge of a minor. In early 2014, Abrams relocated from Marlinton, West Virginia to Virginia Beach, Virginia and failed to update his sex offender registration. He pled guilty in August 2014 to one count of “Failure to Update Sex Offender Registration” after an investigation by the West Virginia State Police and the United States Marshals Service.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn Morgan prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

Chief U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey presided.
