Sex Offender Charged with Failing to Register

Officials in Coffee County are crediting alert neighbors with the arrest of a convicted sex offender from California.

52-year-old Timothy Hebel was convicted of rape by force and a lewd act on a child under the age of 14 in California.

Hebel was out-of-compliance as a sex offender since 1996.

He has reportedly been living in western Coffee County for a number of years and is now charged with failure to register as a sex offender in Alabama.

Officials say it's a priority to identify pedophiles and get them registered, that way residents can take the necessary precautions.
