Convicted sex offender wanted for failing to register

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Over the last several years since I’ve been covering Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers for WAFF 48, News, it seems one crime seems to pop up at least once or twice a month. This week, it’s Jeremy Lynn League who’s wanted for that crime of being a convicted sex offender who failed to register with law enforcement.

You might consider this as a “double crime." League, like countless people before him, has already committed a felony offense. But, by law, they’re required to register with law enforcement to keep up with where they’re living, where they’re working, etc. And like League, when they don’t register, they’re breaking the law again.

In fact, law enforcement has used the Internet to try and warn residents about these convicted felons who might be living close to them without the residents even knowing it. There’s a simple website they’ve created to track these convicted sex offenders to keep us all in the loop. All you have to do is click this link to track down any dangerous people who might be living near you and your family.

Just know that helping us track down League this week for failing to register will help make this a safer community for right now. Keeping informed with these online websites will keep you and your family safe for the months and years to come.
