MADISON - A Beloit man was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury sitting in Madison on the charge of failing to register as a sex offender.
Raynaldo Mendez, 44, is charged with failing to register as required under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA). The indictment alleges that from September 2017 until March 2018, he traveled from Illinois to Wisconsin and failed to update his registration as required by SORNA.
If convicted, Mendez faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison. The charge against him is the result of an investigation by the Beloit Police Department, South Beloit (Illinois) Police Department, Wisconsin Department of Corrections, and U.S. Marshals Service.
