MORGAN CITY, LA (WAFB) -

Two convicted sex offenders find themselves in trouble with the law again after authorities said they failed to comply with some of their required duties.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office reported Rocky Morgan II, 27, of Morgan City, was arrested Monday afternoon on a warrant for failure to notify law enforcement of a change of address as a sex offender.

Morgan was convicted of carnal knowledge of a juvenile in Assumption Parish in 2008.

Deputies said during a routine check to verify the address of sex offenders it was discovered Morgan no longer lived at the address he had last registered with the sheriff's office.

According to detectives, information on his whereabouts was collected and he was found at a motel. The Morgan City Police Department assisted in locating the suspect.

He was booked into the parish jail. No bond was set.

In a separate incident, Robert Kelly, 49, of Morgan City, was arrested Monday afternoon on a warrant for failure to register as a sex offender.

He was convicted of indecent behavior with juveniles in St. Mary Parish in 2004.

SMPSO reported a detective found him at a home on James Street in Morgan City.

He was booked into the parish jail. No bond was set.
