Wisconsin Man Charged with Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Baraboo, Wisconsin, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.

James Nault-Hart, age 29, was indicted on December 14, 2016. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on May 15, 2017, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, a mandatory minimum of at least 5 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that between September 12, 2016, and October 5, 2016, Nault-Hart, who previously had been convicted of Sexual Assault of a Child, knowingly failed to register and update his registration with the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

The charge is merely an accusation and Nault-Hart is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.

Nault-Hart was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
