Struthers, Ohio – A Struthers man was indicted for failing to register as a sex offender.
Dustin M. Wynn, 22, was arrested last month on a probation violation warrant out of West Virginia. Wynn is a convicted sex offender who failed to register despite living in the Youngstown area for more than four months, according to the indictment.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the United States Marshals Service. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jason Katz.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
