A Clarksville man is behind bars after being arrested last week for failure to register as a sexual offender.

On Thursday, March 27, 32-year-old Jesse C. Baldwin was arrested by a Pike County Deputy for failure to register.

These charges stem from a joint investigation between the Pike County Sheriff’s Office and the United States Marshal Service. Both agencies participated to conduct a sexual offender compliance check in late 2013.

During this compliance check, it was determined that Baldwin was found to be in violation of requirements set by statute for information that is required to be provided by sexual offenders.

According to the Pike County Sheriff’s Office, it was determined that Baldwin had not properly notified the Sheriff of his employment and was operating a vehicle, in which he failed to list on his sexual offender registration.

A subsequent investigation was initiated by the Sheriff’s Office and Baldwin was observed operating the vehicle in the presence of two Pike County Deputies.

Pike County Prosecuting Attorney Mark Fisher has charged Baldwin with two counts of a class C felony of failure to register as a sexual offender.

The honorable Judge David H. Ash issued a warrant for Baldwin’s arrest with bond being set at $10,000 cash only.

Baldwin is currently being held at the Pike County Jail in lieu of cash only bond. An arraignment has been scheduled for next Wednesday, April 9.
