Sex offender tries to change license, is jailed

A convicted sex offender is facing two new criminal charges after he allegedly altered his driver’s license to hide his conviction.
Everett Roberts, 31, a resident of Alco Drive, was arrested Monday for violations of the sex offender community notification act, Sgt. Patrick Caylor of the Brewton Police Department said.
“Mr. Roberts never updated his driver’s license with his new address and he also tried to deface his driver’s license by attempting to mark out lettering on his driver’s license that identified him as a convicted sex offender,” Caylor said. “Both of those are violations under Alabama law.”
Roberts was booked into the Escambia County Detention Center. Information on his conviction was not available as his information was not current in the state’s sex offender registry.
