Ohio Man Charged with Failure to Register as a Sex Offender | USAO-SD

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Toledo, Ohio, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.

Maurice Anthony Streater, age 31, was indicted on September 9, 2021.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on October 12, 2021, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, five years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that between January 1, 2021, and September 9, 2021, Streater, a person required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act and a sex offender by reason of a conviction under state law, and having traveled in interstate commerce, knowingly failed to register and update his registration.

The charge is merely an accusation and Streater is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann M. Hoffman is prosecuting the case.   

Streater was released on bond pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
