PLYMOUTH - A local sex offender is facing a felony charge for allegedly violating the stateâ€™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 stateâ€™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.
