A Summerfield sex offender spent a night in jail last week after showing up a day late for his quarterly registration update.
He has re-registered 25 times since originally registering in April 2015. He most recently re-registered in Marion County on Dec. 4, 2020 and was reminded his next re-registration was scheduled for March, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office report.
On the morning of Thursday, April 1, XXXX reported to the sheriff’s office to register. After being read his Miranda warning, he told a deputy he forgot he was required to register in March. XXXX said he realized on March 31 he had forgotten and came to the sex offender unit office, but it was closed. XXXX has been provided with the unit’s office hours in the past and is aware the office is closed on Wednesdays, the report said.
