#childmolestor | Madison County Man Sentenced for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender | USAO-NDNY

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK-Matthew Lamb, 48, of DeRuyter, New York, was sentenced yesterday in federal court in Syracuse, New York, to serve 18-months incarceration, to be followed by a 16-year term of supervised release in connection with his plea of guilty to two counts of failing to register and update his registration as a previously convicted sex offender, announced Acting United States Attorney Antoinette T. Bacon and David L. McNulty, United States Marshal for the Northern District of New York.

On October 7, 2020, Lamb pled guilty and admitted that he had two e-mail addresses that he failed to disclose to the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (“SORNA”).  As part of his guilty plea, Lamb admitted that from May 3, 2016 through May 13, 2019, he failed to register a Yahoo! e-mail address that he created on December 10, 2001, as required by SORNA.  Further, Lamb admitted that from April 27, 2018, through May 13, 2019, he failed to register and update his registration to disclose a Google e-mail address that he created on April 16, 2019, as required by SORNA. 

Lamb was required to register as a sex offender because of his federal conviction in 2012 for distribution of child pornography, receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.  Lamb was sentenced on December 6, 2012, to serve 84-months incarceration, and a 20-year term of supervised release on that conviction.   

In addition to his plea to the failure to register and update a registration as a sex offender, Lamb also admitted yesterday to violating the terms of supervised release previously imposed from his 2012 conviction. He was also sentenced yesterday to a consecutive term of 12-months incarceration for those violations.

This case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tamara Thomson as part of Project Safe Childhood. Launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, Project Safe Childhood is led by United States Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS).
