DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - Coffee County sheriff's authorities have arrested a convicted sex offender for moving without notifying the sheriff's office, as required by his sex offender status.

The Coffee Co. Sheriff's Office was contacted Monday by the Ware County Sheriff's Office about William Westbury, 43, who was registered in Coffee County.

Ware County authorities found Westbury living in Ware County, but his registered address was East Jefferson Street in Douglas.

Westbury was convicted in Florida for sexual battery against a child in 1993.
