Man charged with failing to register as a sex offender

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- A St. Joseph County man has been charged with failure to register as a sex offender for failing to keep his address up to date with police, according to court records.

Phone calls made to his listed numbers were no longer in service.

Choate was arrested on November 2. He is set to be arraigned on November 19.
