---- — A Centerville man is facing two different sex offender registry violation cases in Appanoose County.

Ashley William Inman, 34, was accused by Appanoose County Attorney Richard Scott in January and again in October with failure to comply with the sex offender registry requirements, second or subsequent offense, both being a class D felony.

The first case originated when Inman allegedly resided within 2,000 feet of a school or child care facility having previous convictions of failure to comply with sex offender registry requirements from an aggravated misdemeanor case in April 2001 and felony cases in April 2005 and February 2009.

The second case from October alleges Inman failed to notify the sheriff’s office within five days of changing residence, name, address or telephone number.

Inman was released on June 10 for pretrial supervision to the Department of Correctional Services but on Aug. 27 the Department filed a pretrial report of violation accusing Inman of not being at home for sex offender registry compliance checks twice and failing to report for a scheduled meeting.

Inman’s pretrial release was revoked by the court on Aug. 27. Inman made an initial appearance Sept. 23. Surety bond was posted Oct. 14.

Inman has an arrangement scheduled for today.

The criminal complaint and affidavit filed Dec. 11, 2012 by the Appanoose County Sheriff’s office states Inman is required to register in person in the county of principal residence every May and November as part of his Tier II requirements with the Iowa Sex Offender Registry.
