U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Illinois

On July 31, 2014, Daryl G. Nenninger, 33, of Lawrenceville, Illinois, pled guilty in federal district court, in Benton, Illinois, to failure to register as a sex offender, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today. Nenninger is scheduled for sentencing on November 20, 2014, at which time he faces a prison term of up to ten years, a fine up to $250,000, or both, at least five years supervised release, and a mandatory special assessment of $100.

On December 11, 2013, after registering as a sex offender in Lawrence County, Illinois, Nenninger traveled to the Country of Mexico and was arrested there on March 28, 2014. He was aware of his requirements to inform the State of Illinois of his travel to Mexico by updating his registration. Nenninger has a prior conviction from an Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse case on November 17, 2005, in Bond County, Illinois.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals, who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
