ST. THOMAS - A St. Thomas man appeared in District Court Wednesday after he was arrested and charged with failing to register as a convicted sex offender in the territory.
U.S. Marshals arrested Jevon Stridiron, 25, on Tuesday, and said Stridiron is required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act of 2006 to register as a sex offender since his conviction in 2007.
Stridiron relocated from Florida to the Virgin Islands in 2007, though he never registered with local authorities, according to a statement issued Wednesday by the U.S. Attorney's Office on St. Thomas.
Stridiron was convicted of a sex offense in Orange County, Fla., though no documents could be found Wednesday on PACER, the online court records system, to detail what the offense was. The statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office did not provide details about the conviction.
Stridiron faces up to 10 years imprisonment and fines of up to $250,000, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
