For Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Michael Joseph Taylor, 36, of Sacramento, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge William B. Shubb to three years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release, for failure to register as a sex offender, Acting U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.

According to court documents, Taylor traveled from Oregon to Sacramento, where he resided from at least February 2017 through June 8, 2017, and knowingly failed to register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registration Notification Act (SORNA), as was required based on his 2012 convictions in Oregon for attempted sexual abuse in the first degree and sexual abuse in the third degree. While in failure to register status, Taylor was found in possession of matter that showed a minor engaging in or simulating sexual conduct, which led to Taylorโ€™s arrest by Sacramento County sheriffโ€™s deputies on June 8, 2017, and a separate conviction in state court.
