Sex offender found in Youngstown sentenced to prison

Posted: Updated:
AKRON, Ohio -

A sex offender found living in Youngstown is going to prison.

A federal judge in Akron sentenced Rowland Fink, 40, to 32 months in prison for failing to register in Ohio as a sex offender.

According to an affidavit filed in U.S. district court, Fink was convicted in Philadelphia of Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse in 2008.

Authorities say that since that conviction, Fink continually registered as a sex offender until failing to do so in December 2013.

A warrant was issued by the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole for Fink's arrest. In February 2014 police arrested Fink near a residence on Youngstown's west side, where he was staying.

A federal grand jury indicted Fink in March for failing to comply with the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

In addition to the 32 month sentence, the judge also recommended that participate in a GED program and be permitted to participate in a substance abuse treatment program.

After he completes his sentence, Fink will be placed on probation for three years.
