A 38-year-old Eagle River man, charged with failure to maintain the sex offender registry, was not in Vilas County Circuit Court for a plea hearing last week.

Eric S. Marks told his attorney he was not able to get a ride to the courthouse that day. A $100 cash bench warrant was issued by the court.

According to the complaint, Marks reported living at a new address in Eagle River June 24, but the same day it was noted the property owner did not want Marks living at the residence. June 27, authorities noted Marks was no longer living at the residence and police verified that July 10. July 11, police learned that Marks stayed at the residence one night and a source said they believed Marks had moved to a Minocqua address. Because Marks failed to provide his change of residence within 10 days, on or about July 4, he was arrested and charged with the felony. Marks was originally convicted of third-degree sexual assault in Washington County May 10, 2007.
