Marshals: Absconded York sex offender captured, jailed
A York-area sex offender remains locked up, accused of failing to register his address with state police under Pennsylvania's Megan's Law — and with absconding from his state parole supervision.
Kevin Sterling Walker, 40, is now in York County Prison on $50,000 bail.
In December 2003, Walker was convicted of sexual assault in York County Court and sentenced to five to 10 years in state prison, according to court records.
The conviction requires him to register with state police as as sexual offender for the rest of his life, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.
Walker last registered with state police Oct. 11, when he reported living in the 300 block of West Market Street, according to online Megan's Law records.
But by December, he had moved out and hadn't updated his change of address, according to the marshals service, and he also stopped reporting to his state probation/parole officer.
Walker was then charged with absconding from probation/parole supervision, the marshals service wrote in a news release.
Members of the marshals' fugitive task force tracked down Walker and arrested him about 6 p.m. Wednesday in the 600 block of East Mason Avenue in York City, according to the release.
York City Police and the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole assisted in Walker's arrest, the release states.
