Wadesville man sentenced to prison for failing to follow sex offender laws.

Posey Circuit Court sentenced 30-year-old Casey Ellis to five years Wednesday following pleading guilty to Failure To Register as a Sex Offender.  The Level 5 felony carries a penalty of between one to six years in prison.

On March of 2020, Posey County Sheriff's Office investigated anonymous tips that Ellis failed to be in compliance with sex offender registration requirements.  During the investigation, Ellis was discovered living at a residence in Providence, Kentucky without informing officers in Indiana about his move or registering his new address with the Kentucky Sex Offender Registry.

Ellis admitted fleeing to Kentucky and not registering with authorities during the sentencing hearing.

Posey County Prosecutor Thomas Clowers noted that Ellis has a long history of failing to abide by Indiana's sex offender registration requirements.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
