SABINE PARISH, La. – A Sabine Parish man finds out how much time he will spend behind bars for not updating his sex offender registry after he moved back to Louisiana.

Acting U.S. Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced Friday that Christopher Shane Lewing, 37, of Florien, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge S. Maurice Hicks Jr. to 36 months in prison for on one count of failure to register as a sex offender.

Lewing was also sentenced to five years of supervised release.

According to the July 10, 2017 guilty plea, law enforcement agents arrested Lewing on Jan. 25, 2017 in Sabine Parish on a warrant from Tennessee for a probation violation.

Lewing was living in Tennessee but had moved back to Louisiana in July 2016 without informing law enforcement.  He told U.S. Marshals he knew he was required to update his sex offender registry but had not.
