A former airman convicted of a sex crime while assigned to Misawa Air Base was indicted recently for failing to register as a sex offender in Alabama.

Brian Lee Carroll was convicted of indecent assault at a military court-martial at Misawa in June 2007. He was later discharged from the Air Force because he was an adult criminal sex offender, according to the Dothan Eagle, an Alabama newspaper.

Carroll, 25, was a senior airman with the 35th Maintenance Squadron at the time of his conviction at Misawa.

According to the Dothan Eagle, a county grand jury indicted Carroll on two felony counts for failing to properly notify authorities that he was a convicted sex offender.

Carroll was arrested in December 2007 in Alabama, according to the newspaper, but the grand jury returned the indictment against him late last month. He was released after posting a $15,000 bond.

Military members convicted overseas of sex crimes are required by law to register as sex offenders when they return to the States.
