CNJ staff

A convicted sex offender is headed back to prison for a year and a half after providing police a false address.
Kenneth Leon Mills, 30, was convicted of failure to register as a sex offender, according to a press release from the district attorney’s office.
Mills was released on probation in 2004 under instructions to register as a sex offender for 20 years. In August 2008, Mills informed law enforcement he was moving to Roosevelt County, however sheriff’s deputies discovered he had given a false address, the release said.
Mills faces criminal sexual penetration of a minor, kidnapping and aggravated burglary charges in Tucumcari.
He has been held on a $250,000 bond at the Quay County Detention Center since his arrest last August.
