Tyson Registers As Sex Offender
PHOENIX (AP) _ Mike Tyson registered himself as a sex offender in Arizona as part of his planned move to Phoenix.
Tyson went to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office Thursday to be fingerprinted and photographed. He was convicted of raping a beauty pageant contestant in 1992.
Tyson has been living in Scottsdale and training in Phoenix, but his neighbors will not be notified when he chooses a permanent residence. That’s because the community notification law didn’t kick in until after his conviction.
Tyson pleaded no contest in Maryland on Tuesday to misdemeanor assault for his role in a scuffle after a traffic accident.
Meanwhile, Tyson’s probation officer will file court papers by Monday that could lead to the former heavyweight champion returning to prison.
George Walker, the chief probation officer for Marion Superior Court, said Thursday it appears Tyson violated terms of his probation as a result of his no-contest plea.
