A Bradford man is facing allegations that he failed to follow the requirements outlined under Megan’s Law.
Michael R. Stone, 30, was arraigned Thursday before District Judge David Engman on one count of failure to comply with registration of sexual offender requirements, a third-degree felony.
According to the criminal complaint, at 8:38 a.m. Thursday, Foster Township Police were notified of a possible violation of registration. It was determined that Stone has been employed at Mama Jane’s Restaurant since Jan. 2, but he failed to register his place of employment as per the requirements of Megan’s Law.
Stone is required to register for 25 years, and he must report changes such as new employment within three business days.
The Pennsylvania State Police Megan’s Law website indicates that Stone was convicted in 2020 of indecent assault against a minor.
According to the case docket, the indecent assault case stemmed from an incident on July 4, 2016, in Bradford County. He pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent assault of a person less than 16 years of age, second-degree misdemeanors, and was sentenced to six to 23 ½ months of incarceration and two years of probation.
Stone is free, having posted $25,000 bail, and a preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday.
