JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury and charged with failing to register as sex offender, after traveling from the state of Maryland.

Anthony Vincent Burkitt, 44, also known as Vincent Thomas Wolfe was convicted of attempted second degree rape in Baltimore County, Maryland.

Following his conviction, between 2011 and 2014, Burkitt traveled from Maryland to Florida, where he lived.

Burkitt allegedly failed to register as a sex offender in Florida, as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

If Burkitt is convicted, he will face up to 10 years in federal prison. Burkitt has been in custody on related state charges since his arrest on April 13, 2014.
