Sex-offender fined for not complying

A REGISTERED sex offender who failed to update authorities on his whereabouts after moving to Mildura has been fined.

David John Krahnert arrived in the region from South Australia shortly before Christmas and was served with a notice of his reporting obligations in January.

But in early February, police received information that Krahnert was not living at the address he had given and when they visited the property, a woman told them he had been kicked out three weeks before.

Krahnert was meant to notify authorities of any changes to his address within 24 hours but for a time police were unable to locate him.

He pleaded guilty to the charge in the Mildura Magistrates’ Court and was fined $500.

“I know you’re between places (and) it might be bureaucratic but you have to comply,” Magistrate Andrew Capell said.
