POMEROY, Ohio – A sex offender will be serving 18 months in prison for failing to register as court order.

According to Meigs County Prosecuting Attorney James K. Stanley announces that on June 21, 2018, Mark A. Gibbs, 22, of Reedsville, Ohio, was sentenced to the maximum sentence of eighteen months in prison following his conviction on one count of Failure to Notify Change of Address, a felony of the fourth degree.

Gibbs had previously been convicted of Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a Minor in Washington County, Ohio. Gibbs was thereafter required to register as a sex offender with the sheriff’s office of the county in which he resided. Gibbs failed to notify the Meigs County Sheriff’s Office of a change of address and moved to Daytona Beach, Florida.

Stanley thanks the Meigs County Sheriff’s Office and the Adult Parole Authority for their investigation and assistance in this case.

Gibbs was also recently indicted for Sexual Battery, a felony of the third degree. A jury trial is scheduled for September 4, 2018 in that matter.
