Sex crimes: man arrested for failure to register as sex offender

Authorities in Lake Charles, Louisiana, take sex crimes very seriously. A conviction can result in significant jail time, as well as punitive fines and possible probation. In addition to the aforementioned consequences, those convicted of sex crimes are required by law to list themselves as sex offenders with the proper authorities. Failure to do so can result in additional criminal charges and possible added jail time. Recently, a previously convicted man in Calcasieu Parish found this out after he was arrested for failure to register.

The former executive reported the figure during cross-examination on the fifth day of the investor fraud trial. And while the company alleges that everyone was able to withdraw their money until the Securities and Exchange Commission sued, the executive reported that at least one client -- who has a home in Lafayette, Louisiana -- was denied his right to $20 million.
