A convicted sex offender within Yazoo County was charged with failure to comply after he did not register his current address.
Cleatus Bassett, 29, was charged last week after Yazoo County deputies discovered he was living at an unregistered address.
“It is mandated that all registered sex offenders stay in touch with us about their current address,” said Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department. “He was living at another address other than what was previously listed.”
Bassett was convicted in March of 2011 of statuary rape.
“We also have two more sex offenders who are not properly registered within Yazoo County,” Gann said. “We have warrants for those offenders as well.”
According to the Mississippi Sex Registry, there are about 100 registered sex offenders within Yazoo County.
