LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) -

A Lake Charles couple, both of whom are convicted sex offenders, has been charged with failure to register.

While conducting a monthly address verification check, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office Sex Offender Unit discovered 45-year-old John J. Baccigalopi, Jr. and 33-year-old Jennifer M. Baccigalopi were both working at a motel.

The couple had failed to register their place of employment with authorities, which is a violation of their sex offender registration.

The two were arrested Tuesday and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center on charges of failure to register as a sex offender. Bonds were set at $20,000 each by Judge Clayton Davis.

According to Kim Myers, spokeswoman for the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's office, the Baccigalopi's were both convicted of carnal knowledge of a juvenile in January of last year.
