Aberdeen: Sentencing set for convicted sex offender

By The Associated Press

ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) — A federal judge has set a January sentencing date for a man convicted of failing to register as a sex offender.

Robert Lee Hampton was required to register as a sex offender due to a 1997 conviction for rape and carnal knowledge of a child under 14. He was indicted last November for failing to register. He pleaded guilty in August.

The sentencing is scheduled to take place in U.S. District Court in Aberdeen.
