Forsyth County News

A sex offender who registered a false address in Forsyth County was located and arrested Thursday night.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office warrant unit “tracked down” Vincent Brentley Hall, 28, in Lawrenceville, spokesman Doug Rainwater said.

Rainwater said deputies located Hall in his car in a parking lot and transported him to the Forsyth County Detention Center, where he awaits a bond hearing.

Hall is charged with violation of the sex offender registry for providing false information.

Hall registered in Forsyth County on Monday, providing an address on Chattahoochee Road, according to the sheriff’s office.

On Tuesday, investigators went to the home to verify the address and “information received [there] revealed” that he had never lived there, a sheriff’s office news release stated.

According to Georgia law, any person convicted of a criminal sex offense in any state or territory must register once a year with local law enforcement, providing accurate information about where they work and live. They must also notify authorities if they move.

Hall was convicted of child molestation in April 2007 in Gwinnett County, according to state records.

Rainwater said he will also face a judge in Gwinnett for violation of his probation by not following the sex offender registry requirements.

His probation could be revoked and he could serve additional jail time, Rainwater said.
