Sex offender nabbed for not reporting address

A Warren County convicted sex offender accused of moving without reporting his new address to the state was arrested Saturday.

Money Sanders Jr., 44, was arrested at his new home, 92 Stelivan Road, at 10:46 a.m. and charged with failing to register as a sex offender. His registered address, from which he is believed to have moved, is 4755 Lee Road, Sheriff Martin Pace said.

“When we did our door-to-door check (of sex offenders) a couple of weeks ago, he was the only one who was not in compliance,” Pace said. He said U.S. Marshals routinely check with the sheriff’s office to see that convicted sex offenders are registered.

Sanders posted $5,000 bail and was released at 12:35 p.m., according to jail records.

In 1995, Sanders was convicted of sexual battery and is required for life to register as a sex offender, Pace said.

Pace said deputies found in February that Sanders was no longer living at his Lee Road address and found him at the new address Saturday.
