Sex offender unregistered in Ky.

New charge added to Herald case

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        COVINGTON — A Kenton County judge nearly doubled the bond for a Cincinnati man who authorities say was caught on video appearing to stalk a girl at a department store while fondling himself.

        Clyde Herald, 48, of the 200 block of West Eighth Street downtown, was arraigned Wednesday on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender. Mr. Herald was registered where he lives in Cincinnati, but not where he worked in Kentucky.

        Kentucky requires that convicted sex offenders register if they work or go to school in Kentucky.

        Mr. Herald was previously charged with stalking and soliciting sexual abuse, both misdemeanors.

        The felony failing-to-register charge carries a penalty of up to five years in prison.

        Traditionally, Kenton County judges have followed prosecutors' recommendations and sentenced individuals who fail to register to one year in prison.

        Commonwealth Attorney Bill Crockett, whose office will prosecute Mr. Herald on the felony charge, said he isn't sure what sentence recommendation he would make to a judge if Mr. Herald is found guilty.

        Mr. Herald remained at Kenton County Detention Center Wednesday evening on $55,000 bond.
