James Edward Griffin, 50, of Clarksville, Tennessee, was charged with Failure to Register as a Sex Offender on Tuesday, Aug. 13. Griffin had apparently moved to a George Wallace Drive address in Albertville without making the proper notifications in Tennessee or in Alabama.
Detectives of the Albertville Police Department were notified by a law enforcement agency in Tennessee of Griffin’s new address and his offender status. Griffin was taken into custody without incident and charged on the Failure to Register.
He was taken to the Albertville City Jail and later transferred to the Marshall County Jail under a $10,000 bond. Warrants are also outstanding in Tennessee for Griffin’s arrest.
