Utah Sex Offender Living In Turtle Creek Sentenced To Prison For Failing To Register In PA

PITTSBURGH – An Allegheny County resident has been sentenced in federal court to 13 months incarceration, to be followed by five years of supervised release, of which the first six months will be served at Renewal, Inc. on his conviction of failing to register as a convicted sex offender, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

United States District Judge Nora Barry Fischer imposed the sentence on Kevin McCree, at 31, formerly of Turtle Creek, Pa.

According to information presented to the court, McCree was required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act after having been convicted in 2007 in the state of Utah of the felony sex offenses of Enticing a Minor Over the Internet and Dealing in Material Harmful to a Minor. Between in and around March 2013, and Dec. 10, 2013, McCree traveled in interstate commerce and knowingly failed to register and update a registration, as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

Assistant United States Attorney Amy L. Johnston prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

U.S. Attorney Hickton commended the United States Marshals Service for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of McCree.
