CHILDERSBURG -- A Childersburg man was arrested and is being held on a $5,000 bond after being charged with failure to register as a sex offender.

Noah Anthony Entrekin, 40, of Lakeside Drive, was arrested Tuesday after moving without alerting local authorities, according to Lt. Kevin Koss of Childersburg police.

Entrekin was arrested in connection with the attempted rape in the second degree of a 13-year-old girl in 2008 and pleaded guilty to those same charges the following year, Koss said.

According to the Sex Offender Database maintained by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, Entrekin was released from state prison in 2015.

Koss said Entrekin apparently moved to Coosa County sometime in mid-December without notifying authorities as he is required to do by law. The illegal move was brought to the attention of Childersburg police, who located the new residence, found him there and arrested him.

Violations of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act are class C felonies in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years in prison.
