A former D.C. teacher who was wanted by U.S. Marshals for failing to register as a sex offender and then moving Ohio was sentenced to seven months in jail Tuesday.
In October, federal marshals located Anthony Ross, 43, when he applied for a marriage license in Ohio. Ross, who had been wanted since 2006, was arrested the day before his wedding at his fiance’s home in the Columbus suburb of Gahanna.
Ross was convicted of a sex offense involving a minor in 1999 and was required to register. In addition to seven months in jail, Ross was also placed on seven months of home confinement.
Ross was the first defendant to be indicted and convicted in the District for failing to register as an offender upon relocating out of the city, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.
