A convicted sex offender was arrested this week for failure to comply with the state requirements.
T’Raye Irving, 38, was charged with failure to comply with the local authorities.
Irving was convicted of satutory rape and gratification of lust in Yazoo County in March of 2012.
He remained in jail as of press time.
In Mississippi, failing to register, reregister or comply with electronic monitoring in association with a sex crime is a felony. This means violators could face more than a year in prison, extensive fines and additional life-impacting penalties.
A violation is a felony punishable by a fine of not more than $5,000, or imprisonment in the state penitentiary for not more than five years, or both fine and imprisonment. The offender’s driver’s license or privilege shall also be suspended.
