EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. – A 36-year-old Columbia, Ill. man has been sentenced for failing to register as a sex offender.

Devereaux L. Davis will spend 27 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release.

According to court documents, Davis moved to Missouri from Illinois in 2009 and did not register in Missouri or update his information in Illinois. A year earlier he had signed the Illinois Sex Offender Registration Act Notification form in 2008, acknowledging he must update his address or register if he moved.

Davis was convicted in 2005 of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
