Clement pleaded guilty in August to failing to update his sex offender registration after he left Westlake, La., in 2015 to work and travel with a carnival company. The news release stated that Clement traveled with the carnival company through Texas, North Dakota, Tennessee, and along the Mexican border and in the off-season lived with another carnival worker in Mattoon.
U.S. Marshals Service deputies arrested Clement in March in Streator, Ill., where he told deputies he planned to live with his daughter and five children under the age of 10.
