NEWTON A Lenoir man has been sentenced to prison after a conviction this week on failing to register as a sex offender.

Darrell Larvin Howell, 47, also was convicted of convicted sex offender residence violation and habitual felon status. He was sentenced in a Catawba County court to between 50 and 72 months in prison.

Prosecutors say Howell was convicted in Caldwell County in December 2003 of indecent liberties with a child and was required to register with the North Carolina Sex Offender Registry.

Authorities say Howell then failed to notify authorities of his address early last year.
