A Jasper County judge sent a Joplin man to prison this week for failing to register as a sex offender and for violating probation he was assessed in a nonsupport case.
Circuit Judge Gayle Crane assessed Tyrone F. Wynne, 31, four years in prison on the conviction for not registering his address with the Jasper County Sheriff’s Department. The judge ordered that the sentence run concurrently with a four-year term for nonsupport that he must serve for violating conditions of his probation.
Wynne was living at 221 N. Walnut Ave. in Joplin when he was stopped by police for a traffic violation on May 7 of last year and the officer learned that he had an outstanding warrant issued in Kansas City for an alleged probation violation.
A probable-cause affidavit states that an investigation determined that Wynne was a convicted sex offender who had failed to register with the sheriff’s office.
