A Lancaster man who was convicted several years ago of criminal sexual conduct has been indicted on federal charges when he allegedly failed to register as a sex offender, prosecutors say.

Dennis Burdette Jones, 26, has been charged with one count of failure to register as a sex offender. In 2006, he pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sexual conduct and was sentenced under the Youthful Offender Act, court records show. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, part of that conviction included mandates that he keep his registration current in any state where he lived, worked or attended school.

Jones, prosecutors said, traveled out of state in April and did not register. Where he traveled is unclear.
