PITTSBURGH - A Charleroi man has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh for failing to register as a convicted sex offender, U.S. Attorney David J. Hickton announced.

The one-count indictment named Kerry McFeely, 53, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, McFeely was required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act after having been convicted in 1993 in Vermont Superior Court of a felony sex offense – sexual assault of minor under the age of 16. The indictment states that from April 2011 through last week, McFeely traveled in interstate commerce and knowingly failed to register and update a registration as required by law.

The law provides for a maximum sentence of up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, or both.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Amy L. Johnston is prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States.

The U.S. Marshals Service conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.
