Georgia Man Charged with Failing to Update Sex Offender Registration

ERIE, Pa. - A former resident of Powder Springs, Georgia has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Erie on a charge of failure to register under SORNA, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

The one-count indictment named Yecart Treson Brundidge, 24, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment presented to the court, Brundidge knowingly failed to update his registration as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of 20 years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Christian A. Trabold is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The United States Marshal’s Service, the Erie Police Department and the Millcreek Township Police Department conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
