WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH)–A Waterbury man is being charged with violating the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

31-year-old Byron Vaughn was convicted of rape in Virginia in 2009. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, suspended after two years, and 15 years of probation.

He is accused of failing to update his sex offender registration in Virginia, failure to advise Virginia of his change of residence to Connecticut, and failure to register as a sex offender when he moved to Connecticut and applied for employment in Waterbury in 2016.

U.S. Marshals arrested Vaughn in Waterbury in August. He faces a maximum term of 10 years in prison.

The matter is being investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah R. Slater.
