SEX OFFENDER WHO FAILED TO REGISTER HAS BEEN ARRESTED

Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington says a man who was wanted by the Bossier Sheriff’s Office for failing to renew his sex registration and not informing law enforcement of his change of address has been arrested.

U.S. Marshals Service Violent Fugitive Task Force and Bossier deputies arrested Morris Garnal Hampton on March 9 after they located him not far from his residence on Hogan Road in Elm Grove. He was convicted in 2011 for indecent behavior of a juvenile and is required to renew his sex registration each year for 15 years as a Tier 1 sex offender, but as of last November, he failed to register…for the third time.

Hampton was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking and charged with Failure to Notify Law Enforcement of Change of Address (he did not live at the address on file when deputies checked that home) and Failure to Complete Sex Offender Notification. His bond is set at $100,000.
