A registered sex offender from southwest suburban Kendall County was arrested Monday for failing to update authorities as required by state law.
Thomas Binion, 23, of the 9300 block of Route 34 in Yorkville, was convicted of criminal sexual abuse in 2009, according to a release from the Kendall County Sheriff’s office.
The state’s sex offender registry lists Binion as a sexual predator who was 20 when he sexually abused a 16-year-old victim.
He is required to register as a sexual predator every year for life and notify authorities within three days of any changes in employment or school, the release said.
However, his employment had changed and he allegedly began attending school in late 2011 without notifying the sheriff’s office, the release said. An investigation led to Binion being charged with two counts of violating the Illinois Sex Offender Registration Act, both class 2 felonies.
He remains at the Kendall County Jail held on $30,000 bond.
