Convicted Sex Offender Allegedly Violated Megan’s Law Registration Requirements in Morris County

Dover NJ Sex Crime ChargesA convicted sex offender recently admitted that he violated Megan’s Law by failing to register as a sex offender in Morris County, NJ.

The suspect is a 54-year-old man who was classified as a high-risk, Tier-3 offender after being convicted of a sex crime.

After serving time in prison, the suspect was released on the condition that he meet the requirements of Megan’s Law. This is a law that requires certain convicted sex offenders to register with the local police department in the municipality where they live. For a Tier-3 offender, the requirements are even more strict: the offender must notify camps, daycare centers, schools, and neighbors.

Additionally, Megan’s Law requires a convicted sex offender to notify the local police department prior to changing residences.

In this case, the suspect reportedly moved from Dover to Victory Gardens. However, he allegedly failed to tell police about his change in residences.

If the suspect is convicted of failing to register as a sex offender, he could potentially be sentenced to another three years in New Jersey State Prison.
