PLYMOUTH - A local sex offender is facing a felony charge for allegedly violating the state’s registry requirements.

Kenneth Hurlburt, 31, of 169 Main St., allegedly failed to return a letter verifying his address within the allotted timeframe allowed by the law, according to the warrant for his arrest.

The document said Hurlburt was convicted of third-degree sexual assault in 2006, in West Virginia. The conviction requires a lifetime registration as a sex offender.

According to the warrant, Hurlburt is mailed a letter every 90 days to verify that he still resides at the address he has registered with the state’s sex offender unit. He is required to return the letter within 10 days to stay in compliance.

The warrant for his arrest says Hurlburt was mailed a letter in April 2017 that he had to return by the 27th of that month. Authorities allege the letter was received late with a postmark of a week past the due date.

Hurlburt was arrested Thursday and arraigned in Bristol Superior Court, where he was released on a promise to appear. He is due back in court on July 3.
