DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – Decatur Police arrested a convicted sex offender for failing to register his employment.

William David Britton is required by the Alabama Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act to immediately register his employment with local police upon accepting a job.

Police say Britton came to register a new job on April 22.  However, police learned through investigation that Britton had been employed since February 22, 2013 and failed to register that job with Decatur Police.  He was working within 2,000 feet of Banks-Caddell Elementary School, which was a second offense.

Police obtained two felony warrants for Britton’s arrest, and he turned himself in May 10.  He was booked in the Decatur City Jail and later transferred to the Morgan County Jail on $5,000 bond.

Britton was convicted last year.  The victim in the case was a 13-year-old girl.
