On July 31, Marshall County sheriff's deputies went to Sorter Road in Guntersville to complete a sex offender verification request, assistant chief deputy Steve Guthrie said.
Deputies located Christopher Shane Henderson hiding in a closet of the residence, Guthrie said. Four adults and four children all under the ages of 8 years old were also found living inside this residence.
"This is a direct violation for a convicted sex offender," Guthrie said.
Henderson was charged with being an adult sex offender in a prohibited residence and a sex offender living with a minor.
Henderson was taken to the county jail, where his bond was set at $10,000.
