Man sentenced after second failure to register as sex offender

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – A Raleigh County man was sentenced to ten to twenty years in prison for failure to register as a sex offender.

According to the criminal complaint, Naamon Carter was arrested Feb. 1 by a Beckley police officer for a violation of parole. At that point, the state police learned that he had moved and not informed them within ten business days, as required by law.

This is Carter’s second conviction for failure to register. The first was in Raleigh County in 2021. He was sentenced to one to five years in prison for that offense.

Carter’s sex offender status stems from his conviction of attempted sexual battery of an 11-year-old girl in Colorado Springs in 1984.

He will now serve at least 10 years behind bars.
