According to Chief Deputy Bobby Webre of the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, Sydney Fairchild Jr., 36, of 48259 Amite River Road, St. Amant, is a Tier I Sex Offender who has failed to register as a sex offender in Ascension Parish.

Fairchild failed to complete his annual registration after he was arrested on May 1 on unrelated charges of simple battery. Fairchild gave an Ascension Parish address upon being released from jail the same day. Fairchild was advised that he had three business days upon his release from jail to notify the sex offender division of change of address, and other registration information and he failed to do so. Since May 5, deputies have made several attempts to locate Fairchild at the addresses he provided, added Chief Deputy Webre.

A Tier I Sex Offender is classified as an offender who was convicted of aggravated offenses or sexual offenses against a victim who is a minor and will have a 15-year registration period to be conducted on an annual basis.
