Convicted NH sex offender arrested for failing to appear in court
CHELMSFORD, Mass. — A man guilty of sexually assaulting a victim under the age of 13 has been arrested for failing to appear in court.
The Chelmsford Police Department arrested Ronald Duby, 43, of Nashua, New Hampshire, Saturday around 10:45 p.m. at a North Chelmsford restaurant.
Duby was convicted of two counts of felony sexual assault on a victim under the age of 13 and one count of felony lewd-lascivious conduct with a child in Windsor County, Vt. in 1995. Based on his convictions, Duby was required to register quarterly as a Tier III Sex Offender.
Duby was convicted, again, in 2009 on a Capias out of a Hillsborough South for multiple counts of duty to inform and duty to report, all felonies. He was convicted again in 2012 for duty to inform out of Grafton County Superior Court.
In December 2016, Duby was released on bail for the Capias out of Hillsborough, stemming from a Feb. 2016 arrest in Nashua for duty to inform. Upon his release, Duby was directed by the court to register with the Nashua Police Department upon his release on Dec. 6, 2016.
As of Jan. 10, Duby had still not responded to the Nashua Police Department to complete his sex offender registration, and became non-compliant, police said.
Officials determined that Duby failed to comply with the terms of the registry, and arrested him at Mary's House at 123 West Pearl Street in Nashua.
Duby failed to appear in court for the charge of failure to register as a sex offender/duty to inform, which made him a fugitive with the U.S. Marshals.
