SOUTH SHENANGO TWP. – A convicted sex offender from Centerville is being held in the Crawford County Jail for failing to register his address.  26-year-old Donald E. Griffin was arrested on Friday after State Police learned he had been living on Ralston Road in South Shenango Township for about two months without notifying authorities of his address change.

Online court records indicate that Griffin pleaded guilty in 2008 to unlawful contact with a minor.  In exchange for that plea, several other charges were dropped, including aggravated indecent assault.

The court records also show that Griffin pleaded guilty in the same year to a burglary charge.

A preliminary hearing has been set for April 11th.
