MILLER COUNTY - A Tuscumbia man has been sentenced to 15 years in the Missouri Department of Corrections for failure to register as a sex offender.

Leonard Wilson pleaded guilty to the felony of failing to register as a sex offender and sodomy Tuesday in court.

Wilson was originally required to register when he pled guilty to restraint and sexual misconduct in a Pulaski County case. 

He admitted that in August he was not compliant with his obligations to register as required by Missouri law. 

Wilson also pled guilty to the class D felony of second-degree sodomy for having “deviate sexual intercourse” in July.

A third failure to comply with Missouri’s sex offender registration requirement increases the charge and requires a minimum of two years in prison before the possibility of parole.

Wilson will be subject to extended life time supervisions as sex offender.
