Longview sex offender back in jail for failing to register

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - James Randal Jimerson is required by law to register  as a sex offender annually with law enforcement where he lives. Since 2009, he has been arrested in Gregg County four times for failing to register.

Today, 50-year-old Longview man is in the Gregg County Jail on $25,000 bond. According to Longview police cyber-crimes unit Det. Kevin Brownlee, Jimerson failed to register with Longview Police Department within seven days of his release from state prison as he was ordered.

Jimerson has a past conviction for indecency with a child. According to court documents, Brownlee found no evidence that Jimerson sought to register as a sex offender, obtain a job or get a driver's license after his release from prison.
