A Logan County man was sentenced for failing to update his sex offender registration.
According to press release from the US Department of Justice, 37-year-old James Robert McKinney, of Logan, was sentenced to one year and nine months in prison.
McKinney was originally convicted in September 2012 on three counts of third-degree sexual assault. As part of his conviction, in Doddridge County, Mckinney is required to register as a sex offender.
Moreover, sex offenders are required to register with the state’s sex offender registry when they move. McKinney admitted that he moved to Belpre, Ohio, in August 2020. He also admitted he did not report the move with either West Virginia or Ohio.
McKinney was on parole for his convictions in Doddridge and has two prior convictions in W.Va. for sex offender registration compliance.
The DOJ says McKinney will serve his sentence consecutively with another sentence after his parole revocation.
His sentence will be followed by five years of supervised release.
