DolsonLANSING, Mich. — The Michigan State Police announced the arrest of 51-Year-Old Anthony Dolson for an outstanding warrant for failure to comply with the Michigan Sex Offender Registry.   The arrest occurred on May 2 in Phoenix, Ariz., by the United States Marshals Service District of Arizona Wanted Fugitive Section.  Since May 2010, Dolson was featured on Michigan’s Most Wanted Sex Offenders  website at www.michigan.gov/absconders.

After receiving information  regarding a possible location, the United States Marshals Service arrested Dolson in Phoenix,  Ariz.  In addition to charges for failing to comply with the Michigan Sex Offenders Registration Act, Dolson will face federal charges.

Dolson was convicted of two counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct  Second Degree (person under 13) in 1993.  He was selected as one of  Michigan’s most wanted sex offenders after he failed to change his address.

Michigan’s Sex Offenders Registration Act requires offenders convicted of felony-listed offenses to verify their address at a local law enforcement agency quarterly during the first 15 days of January, April, July and October.  Offenders are also required to report a change of address when they move or vacate a residence.  Failure to do so can result in a felony conviction with a punishment ranging from four to 10 years.
