Vermont sex offender sentenced for not registering in East Texas
A 60-year-old Vermont man has been sentenced to federal prison for failing to register as a sex offender in the Eastern District of Texas. Raymond Leo Lemaire, Jr., pleaded guilty last September to failure to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. He was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison Wednesday in Tyler by U.S. District Judge Leonard E. Davis.
According to information presented in court, in June 2010, Lemaire moved to Whitehouse after having been previously convicted in 2004 in Vermont of the felony offense of lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor.
Lemaire failed to register as a sex offender, as required, upon his move to Texas. He was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 13, 2011.
