CHARLESTON, WV (WVNS) — A man pleaded guilty to resisting a federal officer resulting in bodily injury.

According to court documents on January 14, 2021, Norman Leon Geipe II, 39, was approached by deputy U.S. Marshals outside a Parkersburg homeless shelter who told Geipe they had an arrest warrant saying that he failed to register as a sex offender.

Giepe is scheduled to be sentenced on January 26, 2023, and faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.
