A 42-year-old Jacksonville man has been indicted on a charged of failing to register as sex offender after traveling from the state of Missouri.

Daniel Manning is also charged with possession of firearms by a convicted felon.

If convicted, Manning faces up to 10 years in federal prison for each offense. He has been in custody on related state charges since his arrest on April 30.

According to the indictment, on July 26, Manning was found guilty in Kansas on two counts of aggravated indecent acts and one count of indecent acts with a child. Subsequent to the adjudication in Kansas, and between July 30 and April 30, Manning traveled to the state of Missouri, where he registered as a sex offender.

He then moved to Florida, where he has since lived. According to the indictment, Manning failed to register as a sex offender in Florida, as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

The indictment also alleges that on April 30, Manning knowingly possessed eight different firearms in Jacksonville. At the time of the possession, Manning was a convicted felon and prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition under federal law.
