SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTNV) — A Las Vegas man was sentenced to three years and one month in prison for failure to register as a sex offender.

39-year-old Tony Fernandez Barnes was sentenced on Thursday by U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England Jr., U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced.

According to court documents, Barnes had three prior Nevada state convictions for pandering of a minor, and failed to register as a sex offender upon his release in 2013.

Between 2013 and 2018, Barnes lived in Sacramento and did not register as required under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act and Nevada and California law.

This case was the product of an investigation by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Roger Yang prosecuted the case.
