A probation violation report filed May 3, 2012 alleging several infractions has landed a Wapello County man in state prison.
Anthony Michael Orr, 28, of Ottumwa, had his probation revoked and the original two year prison sentence from November of 2011 was imposed by Judge Kirk A. Daily on Oct. 12, 2012 in the Appanoose County courthouse.
Orr's probation officer filed a report in May of 2012 alleging Orr had contact with a woman who has young children, he was seen on school grounds when sex offender registry rules require registered sex offenders to have permission of school administration before they can enter the property, something Orr allegedly did not have and he failed to attend a meeting with his supervising officer.
Prosecution started when Appanoose County Attorney Richard Scott filed trial information on Nov. 30, 2010 alleging Orr violated the sex offender registry requirements on Aug. 13, 2010 by failing to register a change in residence within five days with the sheriff's office, third offense, which is a class D felony. Orr's prior convictions were in July of 2005 in Wapello County and in May 2009 in Cherokee County.
Scott filed supplemental trial information the same day dropping the prior two convictions of failing to register as a sex offender which took the charge from a felony to an aggravated misdemeanor.
Scott in October of 2011 filed amended trial information to include Count II, violation of temporary lodging registry requirements, second offense, a class D felony. Scott alleged Orr in August of 2011 failed to notify the Wapello County within five days when away from his principal residence.
Orr responded by filing a petition on Oct. 31, 2011 to plead guilty to the aggravated misdemeanor charge of violation of temporary lodging registry requirements, first offense. Orr admitted in his petition he stayed with a friend for more than five days in Centerville without notifying the sheriff.
So Orr was sentenced in November of 2011 to register as a sex offender for an additional 10 years, two years in prison suspended to two years probation with the Department of Correctional Services, credit for any time served, report to the Wapello County sheriff for registration as a sex offender and pay penalties and fines.
The Registry describes Orr as a white male weighing 171 pounds, standing five foot and nine inches tall with blue eyes and blond hair.
Orr owes the state $5,389.45 for this case.
