A former Washington County man is no longer on probation because a federal appeals court overturned his conviction for failing to register as a sex offender in 2007, a federal judge ruled Monday.

Billy Joe Reynolds, 46, pleaded guilty to the registration charge but challenged its constitutionality. The 3rd U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeals ruled in March that the Justice Department failed in 2007 to properly enact the interim regulation used to send him to prison.
