Karl Everette Crawley, a 50-year-old sex offender who moved to Lunenburg County on June 30, was sentenced recently in Lunenburg Circuit Court to one year in prison for failure to re-register as a sex offender, a release from the Lunenburg County Commonwealth’s Attorney Office cited.

He is also serving a four-year sentence for Burglary in Chesterfield County, the release cited.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Robert Clement said that the defendant had moved from Chesterfield County to 4687 Poorhouse Road in Victoria and failed to report his new address within three days as required by law.

Crawley was convicted in 1993 of a felony charge of Rape in Newport News for which he was sentenced to 20 years with 10 years suspended, the release cited.

“He told State Trooper James Inge, Jr. that he really did not have an excuse for failing to re-register,” the release cited.

The defendant received an additional nine years in prison suspended upon conditions including good behavior for ten years, supervised probation upon his release for five years, warrantless searches and seizures, and registering as a sex offender as required by law, the release cited.
