PORTLAND, Maine — A local man will spend the next two years behind bars after he was sentenced on Friday on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

Clyde Hall Jr., 24, had apparently failed to report as required to a halfway house in 2012 after being released from prison in New York on a conviction there.

Hall was arrested in Portland in October 2013 after failing to register as a sex offender.

Hall was returned to New York following his arrest to serve a sentence there, and was returned to Maine upon completing that sentence.

Hall pleaded guilty in federal court last October. In addition to jail time, he was sentenced to 10 years of supervised release.
