A man convicted about 16 years ago of unlawful sexual contact failed to update his address and was arrested as he walked to his new home, a spokeswoman for the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department said.
Daniel Wayne Lambert, 47, was arrested in Moss Point on Tuesday.
He had registered his address April 11 as Shingle Mill Landing, a hunting and fishing camp in Moss Point, the state Sex Offender Registry shows. No current address or employer or vehicle information could be found, the registry says.
Sex offenders are required to update their address, vehicle and employment information every 90 days.
Deputies found Lambert walking to his new home in the 6000 block of Shortcut Road, between Kelly and Camellia streets.
Lambert was convicted in New Castle, Delaware in 2003. The charge of unlawful sexual contact in Delaware is a charge that would be considered a felony in Mississippi.
