City man faces felony for failure to inform


NASHUA – Nashua police arrested a city man after for allegedly providing police with false information on his quarterly sex offender registration.

Police arrested Joseph Travis, 49, of no fixed address, Nashua, at approximately 4:20 p.m. Thursday on a warrant for duty to inform. Police learned that Travis, a convicted sex offender, gave false information on his quarterly registration. After an investigation, officers determined Travis did provide false information. He now faces a felony after previously being charged with failing to register.

On Feb. 24, 1993, Travis was convicted of two counts of rape in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Based on these convictions, he is required to register quarterly as a Tier III Sex Offender for the rest of his life. He was also convicted of failing to register on Dec. 4, 2012 in Boston District Court in Massachusetts, thus making any subsequent offense of duty to inform a class A felony.

Travis was unable to make bail that was set at $5,000 cash/surety and was set to be arraigned Friday.
