A registered sex offender living in Mount Vernon was arrested earlier this month for failing to report his Internet accounts.

Shane Mincey, 41, is a registered sex offender with the Davison County Sheriff’s Office. As part of the registry, all sex offenders must inform law enforcement of any Internet accounts they may have, such as email or social media.

Mincey told law enforcement in a recent interview he has email and has had a Facebook account since October 2012, and he knew he was supposed to report his accounts, according to court documents.

He was arrested Oct. 9.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is two years in prison, a $4,000 fine or both.
