A former Jamaica Plain man pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday to charges of failing to register as a sex offender, according to an announcement from U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and U.S. Marshal John Gibbons.
Gary Dixon, 49, who was indicted in August 2013 after being arrested in Maine, pleaded guilty to one count indictment before U.S. District Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton, according to the statement. Dixon is scheduled to be sentenced June 4.
Dixon was previously convicted in Massachusetts for indecent assault and battery on a child in 1998 and 1993, and for open and gross lewd and lascivious behavior in 2003, according to the announcement.
Dixon, who reportedly moved from Jamaica Plain in 2012 without informing Massachusetts authorities, was required to inform state law enforcement of any change in his residence or employment, as well as to appear in person within three days to authorities in any state to where he had moved.
Dixon was recorded as living in Brunswick, Maine as early as January 2013, and did not inform authorities of either Maine nor Massachusetts. He was subsequently arrested in July 2013, according to the announcement.
