BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A convicted sex offender living in a North Dakota trailer park has been arrested for failing to register with federal authorities.

Officials say 41-year-old Troy Kartchner has been living in Watford City since October, after moving from Utah. He failed to tell authorities about his relocation, as required by law.

Kartchner was ordered to register as a sex offender as part of his December 2004 conviction in Utah for forcible sexual abuse.

The government has filed a motion asking that Kartchner remained jailed. A detention hearing is scheduled Friday.
