BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Deputies with the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested a Napoleonville man Monday for allegedly failing to properly register as a sex offender after leaving prison.

Telly Savalas Ross, 47, had been convicted of indecent behavior with a juvenile back in September 2013. He was released in August 2018 upon the completion of his sentence, according to APSO.

In March 2021, APSO learned that Ross had not been living at the address he had given authorities at the beginning of the process to register as a sex offender. He had allegedly failed to register at his new address, according to APSO.

Ross was booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Facility on the charge of failure to register as a convicted sex offender.
