BJJ Instructor Chris Naugle Arrested Last Night For Failing To Register As Tier 3 Sex Offender

A BJJ instructor was arrested last night after he failed to register as a Tier 3 sex offender.

According to a Facebook post, Scott Naugle, a BJJ black belt and the owner of Leverage Jiu-Jitsu, had “evaded the system for years.”

Naugle’s profile on Leverage Jiu-Jitsu’s website says he has been training BJJ since 1997 and was promoted to black belt four years ago by Chris Saunders, the first American to get his black belt from Rickson Gracie.

According to the Find Law legal website, a Tier III sex offender classification is:

…the most serious of the three tiers under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. A Tier III crime is one that is punishable by at least a year in prison and is accompanied by aggravated sexual abuse or abusive sexual contact when committed against a minor under 13 years old. A crime can also fall into this category if it involved the kidnapping of a minor not accompanied by a parent or guardian, or if it was committed after the offender had committed a Tier II crime. Offenders convicted of Tier III crimes have a lifetime reporting requirement, meaning that the offender must register with local authorities every time he or she changes address or moves to a different jurisdiction.
