A Steuben County man, and accused sex offender, has been arrested.
The Steuben County Sheriff’s Office says 55 year old Jerry Haifley of Angola was arrested Wednesday for failure to register as a sex offender. That’s a class D felony.
Haifley was convicted of sexual battery in 2003 and is required to register as a sex offender under Indiana law.
Haifley had been registering as required but recently failed to register. He’s now behind bars in Steuben County until his initial hearing.
