BECKLEY (WVVA) - A convicted sex offender has been arrested for failing to register new information.

53-year-old Jimmy Whitt of Beckley was convicted in 2010 of attempted sexual assault of a minor in Mercer County -- therefore he must register for life. That includes changes in employment status.

West Virginia State Police say Whitt failed to disclose within ten days that he was no longer employed with an Ohio company.

He was arrested at his home and charged with one felony count of failing to register.

Whitt was arraigned, but he was unable to meet the $5,000 bond.

He remains in custody at Southern Regional Jail.
