BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KSDK) - A man living in Belleville, Illinois has been charged with failing to register an address as a sex offender.
David M. Hoffarth, 49, was charged after police determined that he had misrepresented his living situation.
He was required to register with the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department every seven days because he was considered homeless.
While fulfilling his requirement, officials within the sheriff's department noticed that Hoffarth appeared well kempt, raising concerns about his registration.
Investigators were able to follow him to an address in the 800 block of North Church Street in Belleville, where it was determined that he had been living and paying rent.
A St. Clair County judge set his bond at $50,000.
