COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- A man formerly convicted of sexually abusing several children, and was set free because of a technicality is set to have a preliminary hearing on April 9.
Michael McFadden was arrested in Colorado Springs on March 2 for failure to register as a sex offender. This comes after his conviction and his 300-year prison sentence was overturned.
Initially, he was not required to register as a sex offender, but he is now required to register because of a conviction from the 1990's.
Court documents show McFadden refused to sign the notice to register before his release from the Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility in Eastern Colorado.
He is currently being held on a $1,000 bond.
