Florida sex offender arrested in Tennessee

KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) - A Florida man wanted for violation of
the state's sex offender registry has been arrested in Kingsport.

The Kingsport Times-News reported that 40-year-old Kenneth Eugene Joseph has been living in the same apartment building for seven years when the property manager decided to check his background after a complaint from another resident.

Joseph, who had Florida identification, was convicted of
unlawful sexual activity with a minor between 16 and 17 years old.

The last time he registered on the state's sex offender list was in
1998.

Kingsport police arrested Joseph over the weekend on a fugitive
from justice charge.

He is being held in the Blountville jail.
