Sex offender sentenced to prison for not reporting


A man convicted of child sex trafficking was sentenced in Pittsburgh federal court Monday to serve an additional 18 months of jail time on top of his prior 10-year sentence for trafficking.

Daniel Teed, 57, formerly of Shenot Road, Wexford, also was ordered to three years of supervised release, to run concurrently to his prior term of supervised release, on his conviction of failure of to register as a sex offender and failure to surrender for sentence, U.S. Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

He was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Arthur J. Schwab.

According to information presented to the court, from Oct. 23, 2017, and continuing through Feb. 13, Teed, who was required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, knowingly failed to register.

Teed was arrested Feb. 12 in Flagstaff, Ariz., following a nationwide manhunt led by the U.S. Marshals Service. Teed, a convicted sex offender, was wanted for failing to surrender to serve a 10-year prison term.

Deputy Marshals were dispatched to multiple states and eventually developed information that Teed had traveled to Flagstaff. Investigation revealed that Teed was employing an alias and had disguised his appearance to avoid capture.

Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
