Jefferson County man admits to failure to register charge

MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Jordan Paul Plotner, of Charles Town, West Virginia, has admitted to a failure to register charge, United States Attorney William Ihlenfeld announced.

Plotner, 33, pleaded guilty today to one count of “Failure to Register.” Plotner, a person required to register as a sex offender because of a prior conviction, admitted to traveling across state lines without updating his information in the sex offender registry from April to November 2021 in Jefferson County and elsewhere.
