Man charged with failure to register

LAKE PLACID - A man convicted of aggravated sexual assault in Texas on a child in 1999 was arrested Wednesday on a warrant, according to a report. Jon Leland McNabb, 34, 314 E. Phoenix St., Lake Placid, was charged with failure of a sex offender to report a name or residence change. The report said that when McNabb originally reported in Highlands County, it was discovered that he had failed to report to Texas that he had moved from that state. But Texas declined to prosecute, the warrant said. Several months late, McNabb notified the Sheriff’s Office he was moving within Highlands County, but failed to follow all the reporting requirements, the report said.
