Project Safe Childhood - Concord Man Sentenced To 24 Months For Failure To Register

            CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE:   Robert Grant, 60, of Concord, New Hampshire, was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison by the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire after pleading guilty to one count of failing to register as a sex offender, announced United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice. 

            In July 2013, Grant was interviewed by the Concord Police Department.  Grant advised that he was homeless and understood that he was required to register as a sex offender.  After several more contacts with the Concord Police, Grant registered as a sex offender in December 2013.

           Grant left New Hampshire shortly thereafter.  In December 2015, a grand jury for the District of New Hampshire charged Grant with violating the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.  Grant was found in Colorado and was arrested there in January 2016.  He was returned to New Hampshire and pleaded guilty to the charge on February 26, 2016. 

           Grant was also sentenced to five years of supervised release that will begin after he is released from prison.  During the period of supervised release, the United States Probation and Pretrial Services Office will monitor Grant’s behavior.

           The case was investigated by the United States Marshal and the Concord Police Department.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Helen Fitzgibbon.
