A convicted sex offender, 45-year-old Steven Graves, has been sentenced two years in prison after creating six social media accounts and failing to register them.

In October 2019, Graves was charged in Stone County with six felony counts of failure to comply with registration and reporting requirements.

Online records indicate Graves pled guilty in 2012 to a felony charge of second-degree solicited sexual assault charge. He was sentenced to eight years of supervised probation and required to register as a sex offender. No details on the charge are available in online records. He was on probation at the time of his arrest last year.

Graves entered a guilty plea in Stone County Circuit Court earlier this month.
