A Campbellsville man has been arrested and charged with violating the terms of his sex offender registration.

Roy Mace, 31, was arrested last Monday at about 5:30 p.m.

According to Mace's arrest citation, Campbellsville Police Officer Bart Gilpin responded to the report of a man at City Hall causing a disturbance.

Records state that Mace told Gilpin that he is homeless and not in compliance with the terms of his sex offender registration.

According to the Kentucky State Police Sex Offender Registry, Mace is a lifetime registrant who was convicted in Indiana of vicarious sexual gratification. His victim, the registry states, was 5.

The registry lists Mace's address as 39 Smith Ridge Road in Campbellsville. He is listed as compliant with the terms of his registration.

Failure to comply with the terms of sex offender registration is a Class D felony punishable by as much as five years in prison.

Mace pleaded not guilty to the charge in Taylor District Court last Wednesday.

Bond was set at $10,000 cash and he was appointed a public defender. Mace is expected to appear in court again Wednesday.
