Convicted Sex Offender Sentenced In Steuben County

A con­victed sex offender was sen­tenced to five years in prison on Mon­day in Steuben Cir­cuit Court. 27-year-old Christo­pher Fugate was arrested by U.S. Mar­shals in Jan­u­ary in Hicksville. Fugate was sen­tenced to two years in prison for his fail­ure to reg­is­ter as a sex or vio­lent offender after he was released from the Indi­ana Depart­ment of Cor­rec­tions, where he served time for a con­vic­tion on a felony charge of sex­ual mis­con­duct with a minor. He was handed another three years, which will run con­sec­u­tively, on the pro­ba­tion vio­la­tion. At the end of the day, Fugate was also given credit for 166 days already served in the Steuben County Jail.
