A former Alton resident says he did not register as a sex offender in Illinois or updated his information because he knew there were outstanding warrants for his arrest. 29-year-old Joshua D. Kenshalo has been sentenced to 33 months in federal prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release, fined $250, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment.
His sentence for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender follows his arrest in June of last year after leaving a halfway house in Missouri on January 27, 2014. He was at the halfway house while on probation for larceny. Kenshalo was required to register as a sex offender because of a 2002 conviction for Criminal Sexual Assault of a Family Member.
