Peterborough man sentenced for failing to register as sex offender


CONCORD - A Peterborough man has been sentenced to five years of supervised release for failing to register as a sex offender.

The sentence was handed down in the U.S. District Court this week, according to Acting U.S. Attorney Donald Feith.

William Townley, 56, of Peterborough, was convicted of felonious sexual assault in 1996 against a 13-year-old. He was required to register for life under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. In January, 2014, Townley failed to register as a sex offender after traveling to New Jersey and Indiana.

He stayed in Indiana from March to September of 2014, and authorities say he knowingly failed to update his registration in New Hampshire.
