Nashua Sex Offender Arrested After Failing to Register
NASHUA — A convicted sex offender was arrested after failing to register a change of information.
Nashua police said their investigation began when they learned that Richard Newton, 38, had moved out of an address in Nashua without properly updating his Sex Offender Registration information.
Police said they determined that Newton had failed to report a change to his information as required and a warrant was obtained for his arrest.
He was arrested Wednesday and charged with one count of duty to inform, a class B felony.
Police said Newton was convicted of committing lewd and lascivious acts in Ocala, Florida, on June 4, 2009. Based on that conviction, Newton is required to register quarterly as a Tier III Sex Offender for the remainder of his life.
Newton’s bail was set at $1,000 cash only and he is being held at the Valley Street jail pending arraignment Thursday.
