Kleve charged with violating registration requirements

Christopher Bernard Kleve, 26, Kensington, has been charged with one felony count of a known predatory offender violating registration requirements or intentionally providing false information.

On June 28, Kleve was released from custody in Todd County on a pre-trial release. He was ordered to follow all the conditions of release which included registering as a predatory offender. According to the criminal complaint, he had told Todd County officials he would be living on 330th Street, a Motley address.

On July 18, Kleve called the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office on an unrelated incident and allegedly told the dispatcher he was living in a motel in Lincoln.

Deputies could not find verification that Kleve had filed a change of address with the sheriff’s office. They contacted a resident of the previous Motley address and was told Kleve no longer lived there.

If convicted, Kleve faces a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment and/or $10,000 fine.
