United States Attorney Michael J. Moore announced that on Thursday, October 14, 2010, United States District Judge W. Louis Sands, United States District Court, Middle District of Georgia, Albany Division, sentenced SHAWN E. HASTINGS, age 40, a resident of Cordele, Georgia, to 27 months imprisonment.
There is no parole in the federal system.
Hastings entered a plea of guilty on June 9, 2010 to a one count indictment charging him with a violation of the federal law known as ("SORNA") the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, a violation of Title18, United States Code, Section 2250(a), in connection with Title 42, United States Code, Section 16901 et seq.
Because of a 1997 qualifying felony conviction in Cattaraugus County, New York, Hastings was required to register as a sex offender in whatever state he was living and to update state authorities in the event he decided to move.
Hastings was a registered sex offender in the State of Georgia while residing in Georgia. At some point in July, 2009, Hastings left the Cordele area and moved to the State of New York.
Hastings did not notify either Georgia or New York authorities of his whereabouts, as required by SORNA. The case was investigated by Deputy United States Marshal Reggie Hurst and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jim Crane.
