HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – A man who was convicted of sexual abuse in Connecticut has pleaded guilty to failing to register as a sex offender after moving to Arizona.

Federal prosecutors say 30-year-old Christopher Agritelly faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced in February.

The U.S. attorney’s office says Agritelly pleaded guilty Tuesday in the Hartford District Court.

Agritelly had been living in New Britain, Connecticut, when he was convicted in September 2007 of first-degree sexual abuse.

He was released from prison in February 2013 and moved to Tempe, Arizona.

Authorities say he initially complied with sex offender registration requirements but did not register in Arizona.

He was arrested by law enforcement in Arizona in January.
