OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — A man convicted in Kentucky of sexually assaulting a child is now scheduled for sentencing Sept. 26 in Mississippi for failing to register as a sex offender.

Lloyd Clinton Davis pleaded guilty to the registration charge in May in U.S. District Court in Oxford.

Davis was convicted in Kentucky’s Barren County for first degree sexual abuse of a 12-year-old girl in 2005. He was sentenced to three years in prison.

An affidavit filed in court records said Kentucky authorities issued an arrest warrant for Davis in December 2012. He was arrested in Pope, Miss., in February.

Davis told authorities he moved from Kentucky to Mississippi in December because of problems he was having with his girlfriend and was living with his mother.

The affidavit said he told investigators that he stayed in Mississippi because his mother had health problems.

Davis also told investigators that he had been a member of the Gangster Disciples gang in the past but was no longer active, according to the affidavit.

A federal grand jury indicted Davis in March. He pleaded guilty in May. He faces up to 10 years in prison.
