Registered sex offender accused of giving false information to police

A man already in trouble for failing to register as a sex offender faces another charge.

This time around, Purcell Police said Jorge Beltran provided false or misleading registration information to them on Nov. 28.

The 41-year-old was supposed to be living at 1404 Whippoorwill in Purcell. When police made contact at the residence, they learned Beltran wasn�t living there nor had he lived there.
He later told police he was living with his father east of Noble in Cleveland County, according to the police report.

Police said Beltran had registered as living at that address on a Nov. 16 visit to the police department.

On Nov. 29, Beltran was charged with a felony of providing false or misleading registration information in McClain County District Court.

In August, Beltran was charged with failure to register as a sex offender. His bond was set at $25,000.

The court records showed Beltran entered a plea of nolo contendere to that charge Oct. 30. He was sentenced to a five-year term with the Department of Corrections except for the first 78 days he had spent in the McClain County Jail.

According to court records, Beltran was put on a two year probation with DOC and ordered to comply with the provisions of the sex offender act.

The court records showed that Nov. 29 a motion to revoke his suspended sentence in the August case was filed by the state. If he is found guilty during the revocation hearing, Beltran will have to serve the five-year term in prison, less the 78 days.

On the DOC�s sex offender registry, Beltran was convicted in 1997 on a charge of cause, procure or permit – injury/sex abuse out of Cleveland County. The DOC Web site showed Beltran will have to be a registered sex offender for a lifetime, but the crime was not aggravated or habitual.
According to Cleveland County Court records, Beltran was charged in 1997 with lewd molestation. His last name was listed as Guerra, the court records showed. This charge was later amended to injury to a minor child (lewd).

The convicted sex offender records in Cleveland County also showed three counts of assault and battery on a police officer in 1997. He was sentenced to two years with DOC, and ended up going to DOC after he was found guilty on a revocation, court records showed.

Beltran is currently being held in the McClain County Jail in lieu of a $20,000 bond.
