Unregistered sex offender in Tilton sentenced to 21 months in prison

CONCORD - A former Maine man will spend the next 21 months in federal prison after being found in Tilton and arrested for being an unregistered sex offender, federal prosecutors said.

James Nelson Lund, 37, of Tilton and Berlin, and formerly of Vasselboro, Maine, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Concord. He will be under supervised release for 10 years after he serves his sentence.

When Lund was arrested in Tilton last May, he had his personal belongings in a pickup truck; he told police he preferred to live a transient lifestyle and he and his wife planned on moving to the Midwest.

Police had been tipped off that Lund had been living with his wife at 9 School St., Apt. 1.

Lund has been required to register as a sex offender since 2001, when he pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of a minor in Maine.
