Lane Anthony Brown, 23, homeless in Hot Springs – allegedly failed to report in accordance with the AR convicted sex offender requirements.

In late October, HSPD Detective Branstetter checked the police computer and allegedly found that Mr. Brown was arrested on 9/19/2019.  He allegedly listed his address on that date as “homeless”.  It appeared as though Mr. Brown failed to return and verify his address within the 5 day time limit allowed by law.  Convicted sex offenders have 5 days to report change of address to local law enforcement.  Det.
