BIRMINGHAM, AL (WCSC) - A convicted sex offender from South Carolina was arrested in a suburb of Birmingham, Ala. after he failed to register with the county, officials there said.

James Edward Long, 41, was arrested and charged with failing to register as a sex offender in Jefferson County, Ala., by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. Long was living with his wife less than 2,000 feet from Hueytown Middle School.

After his arrest, deputies also learned Long was wanted by Spartanburg police for violating the Sex Offender Act, said Jefferson County deputy Randy Christian.

He is expected to be charged federally through the Adam Walsh Act, a 2006 law that required sex offenders to register and notify authorities of their living arrangements.

Long is currently being housed in the Jefferson County Jail with a $30,000 bond and an additional hold from the state of South Carolina.

Long was originally convicted of committing a lewd act on a child under the age of 16 in 1999. That offense happened in 1999.
