A 22-year old Tunkhannock man could face as much as seven years in prison for failing to register as a sex offender.

James Corey Gleason appeared before Wyoming County President Judge Russell Shurtleff on Friday morning and entered a guilty plea for not keeping the state police informed of his whereabouts earlier this year.

District attorney Jeff Mitchell said Gleason was sentenced back in 2013 on a corruption of minors charge in Bradford County involving another person when Gleason was just 18 and the victim was less than 16.

Mitchell said the sentence carried with it a Megan’s Law requirement to register as a sex offender, and both Gleason and his attorney Robert Shiels acknowledged the fact Friday.

Judge Shurtleff said the violation also carried a maximum fine of $15,000.

He said that Gleason would be sentenced at a later date.
