A former Tye resident has admitted to failing to register as a sex offender.

Glenn Wayne Baker pleaded guilty to an indictment, which charges failure to register and update registration as a sex offender.

Baker was convicted by a jury of aggravated rape in Taylor County in August 1981.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, in January 11th, 2013, Baker registered as a sex offender, listing his address in Tye, which is in Taylor County. In late July of 2013, Baker cut off his electronic monitor and moved to Enid, Oklahoma without providing any notice to authorities.

He moved in with his wife, whom he married while in prison. Baker told his wife that he had been given permission to move to Oklahoma, and stayed there until his arrest in mid-August of this year.

Baker faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
