JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Live Oak man faces 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to failing to register as a sex offender.
Denny Junior Jenkins, 41, who was arrested on Feb. 15, could also face a lifetime of supervised release, according to a release from the office of U.S. Attorney Robert E. O'Neill.
After being convicted of two counts of attempted sexual battery on a child under 12 years of age in September 1992, Jenkins was notified that he was required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life following release from prison, and if he moved to a different state.
Jenkins moved to South Carolina in 2010 and then moved to Suwannee County in April 2012. He failed to register as a sex offender in Florida under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, according to court documents.
The case was investigated by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Suwannee County Sheriff's Office. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney D. Rodney
Brown, and was brought about through Project Safe Childhood, according to the release.
