Lynchburg Man Sentenced for Failing to Register as Sex Offender

Darren Beauregard to serve 18 Months for not keeping up with Requirements under SORNA

LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA – A Lynchburg man, who previously pled guilty to failing to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act [SORNA], was sentenced today in Federal Court after he failed to keep his registration up-to-date, United States Attorney John P. Fishwick Jr. announced today.

Darren Andrew Beauregard, 50, of Lynchburg, Virginia, previously pled guilty in the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia in Lynchburg to one count of failure to register as a sex offender as required under SORNA. Today in District Court, Beauregard was sentenced to 18 months in Federal prison and five years of supervised release thereafter.

“The Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act is an important tool for law enforcement in regards to keep our communities safe,” United States Attorney John P. Fishwick Jr. said today. “When individuals fail to comply with the requirements placed on them by SORNA, we will work with our law enforcement partners to prosecute them.”

The investigation of the case was conducted by the United States Marshals Service.  Assistant United States Attorney Ashley B. Neese prosecuted the case for the United States.
