A Lake Charles man has been arrested by Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s deputies, accused of failing to register as a sex offender numerous times.

Edwards Aaron Jr., 58, was convicted of simple rape in 1996. He now must register as a sex offender.

Deputies say he is supposed to complete sex offender registration every three months, and didn’t do so in June, September or December of 2017, and didn’t do so in March, June, September or December of 2018.

He’s been booked with seven counts failure to register as a sex offender. If convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of two years in prison on the first count, and a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison, and up to 20 years in prison. All sentences for this conviction are served without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.

CPSO Detective Cory Myers is the lead investigator on this case.
