CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Deputies with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office arrested three men on Tuesday on charges of failure to register as a sex offender.

Deputies responded to a residence in Iowa, La., in reference to a possible unregistered sex offender living there.

"Upon arrival, deputies discovered convicted sex offender Isaac S. Gary, Jr., 27, of Iowa, had moved two months prior without notifying the proper authorities within three days, as is required by law for all registered sex offenders," said Kim Myers, spokeswoman for the Calcasieu Sheriff's office, in a news release.

Investigators also checked on the status of convicted sex offenders Phillip J. Babineaux, 43, and Demar L. Francois, Sr., 26, both of Lake Charles. The two men were found to not be in compliance with their in-person registration.

According to investigators, Gary was convicted of indecent behavior with a juvenile in July 2008 in Lafayette Parish. He was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center on a charge of failure to register as a sex offender. His bond was set at $10,000 by Judge Clayton Davis.

Babineaux was convicted of sexual battery of the infirmed in January 2008 in Calcasieu Parish, authorities say. He was also booked into the CCC on a charge of failure to register as a sex offender. His bond was set at $25,000 by Judge Clayton Davis.

Francois was convicted of carnal knowledge of a juvenile in September 2011 in Calcasieu Parish. He was booked into the CCC on a charge of failure to register as a sex offender. He was later released on a $25,000 bond set by Judge Clayton Davis.
