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

Daryl G. Nenninger, a 34-year old, Lawrenceville, Illinois, man was sentenced on February 18, 2015, in federal district court in Benton, Illinois, for violation of the Sex Offender Notification and Registration Act, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today. Nenninger was sentenced to 48 months in prison with 5 years of supervised release to follow; fined $100, and ordered to pay $100 special assessment.

The violation was discovered after the Department of State and the U.S. Consulate in Mexico notified the United States Marshal’s Service that Nenninger had been arrested in Mexico on March 28, 2014. Nenninger was extradited to Illinois and taken into custody by law enforcement officials, where he then admitted that after registering in Lawrence County, Illinois, on December 11, 2013, he took a train from Effingham, IL, to El Paso, Texas, and then crossed the Mexican border without properly informing the State of Illinois as to his whereabouts. Nenninger was convicted on November 17, 2005, for Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse in Third Judicial Court in Bond County, Illinois.

The case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel T. Kapsak.
