Clovis, NM ~ Ninth Judicial District Attorney Matthew Chandler announced today that Kenneth Leon Mills, age 30, was convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender and sentenced to the maximum punishment under the law.

Kenneth Mills completed his incarceration/probation/parole requirement in May of 2004, at that time he was notified by local law enforcement that he must register as a sex offender for a period of twenty (20) years.

The Failure to Register as a Sex Offender charge stems from August 20, 2008, when Mills reported that he would be residing at a Roosevelt County address. After a thorough investigation, Sheriff’s deputies uncovered that Mills willfully and knowingly provided a false address when he knew he was required to register with the Sheriff of the county in which he resides.

The Honorable Stephen K. Quinn presided over the sentencing and Chief Deputy District Attorney Andrea Reeb prosecuted the case for the State. Judge Quinn sentenced Kenneth Leon Mills to serve the maximum punishment, eighteen (18) months in the Department of Corrections for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.
