A convicted sex offender from Hanover was arrested by U.S. marshals in Oklahoma for allegedly failing to comply with registration requirements.
When Lisha Marie Ingram, 29, no address provided, was convicted of sexual child abuse in a Maryland court in 2005, she was ordered to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life, according to a news release from the marshals' office.
Since then, Ingram moved to Pennsylvania, and in early 2012 she failed to update her new address with state police, marshals said.
On Aug. 23, district judge James Miner issued a warrant for Ingram's arrest, and a couple of weeks later, Penn Township police requested marshals' help in arresting her, the release says.
Marshals and local police in Stillwater, Okla., arrested Ingram there on Monday. She is awaiting extradition to Pennsylvania, the release says.
Marhals continue to investigate to determine if Ingram violated the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, which makes it a federal offense for convicted sex offenders to flee from state to state to avoid registration, the release says.
