MONTGOMERY, AL (WTVM) - A resident of Phenix City has been sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for his failure to register as a sex offender.

Christopher Hearlson, 36, failed to register as a sex offender when he moved to Phenix City in September 2015, which is a legal requirement.

Chief United States District Judge W. Keith Watkins sentenced Hearlson to 30 months in federal prison, followed by a 10-year term of supervised release.

According to his sex offender registry information from the state of Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Hearlson was convicted in June 2004 of second-degree sodomy of a minor female in Russell County, AL.

Hearlson remains in the custody of the United States Marshals Service pending placement by the Bureau of Prisons.

This case was investigated by the United States Marshal’s Service.  Assistant United States Attorney Hollie Worley prosecuted the case.
