GREENVILLE, Miss. — Federal court records say an April 8 trial date has been set for a man charged with failing to register as a sex offender after moving from Mississippi to Ohio.

A complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Greenville, Miss., says James Artis Gilmore was convicted in 1982 on charges of rape, kidnapping and armed robbery in Tate County, Miss.

The filing says he had been living in Desoto County, Miss., before moving to Toledo, Ohio. He was arrested in Ohio on Dec. 5.

He has pleaded not guilty.
