Established in 2004, the Mary Rippy Violent Crime Offenders Registration Act requires those convicted of specific violent crimes to register their address with authorities for 10 years following the completion of their sentence.

In 2009 Kemble was convicted of manslaughter. (see story)

As a result he was ordered to register with the act. Last week he was convicted of failing to register and sentenced to five years in prison with all time suspended.
