Police say he failed to share address

An Albert Lea man on Thursday pleaded not guilty in Freeborn County District Court to violating his requirements as a predatory offender.

It is the second time in a year and a half that Allen Markus Freeman-Ingersoll, 26, is accused of the registration violation. He was convicted of the first instance in September for failing to update his address but was released from the Freeborn County jail because he had completed two-thirds of his sentence. He was charged in October with the second instance.

Under state law, predatory offenders are required to register several pieces of information with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, including where they live, where they work, what they drive and if they own property, among other requirements. Knowingly violating these requirements results in a new felony charge.

In the most recent violation, Freeman-Ingersoll is accused of not updating his address or employment, according to court documents.

Court records state Freeman-Ingersoll updated his offender registration on Oct. 7 to an address at the Countryside Inn Motel. He had made no changes to his employment since April 11, 2012.

On Oct. 30, a probation agent attempted to do a home visit with Freeman-Ingersoll but found out he had moved out more than a week prior.

Upon further investigation, authorities found out Freeman-Ingersoll had also started working at Hardeeā€™s in Albert Lea on Oct. 20.

Court documents state he admitted to an Albert Lea police detective he had not been residing at the motel since Oct. 22 and said it was around the same time he had started the job.

Freeman-Ingersoll is required to register as a predatory offender because of a conviction in 2008 of fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct.
