Sex Offender Registry Arrest

A Cherokee man has been arrested for non-compliance with the sex-offender registry.

Twenty-eight year-old Shawn Hand was recently charged with second or subsequent sex offender registration violation, a class “D” felony. The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office says a compliance check was made, and it discovered Hand had moved out of the residence listed on the sex offender registry. Hand is required to notify the sheriff’s office within five days of moving. He has also been charged with providing false information to the sex-offender registry, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Hand was convicted of conspiracy to commit sexual abuse in 2009 in a case involving a female between 14 and 17.
