A Laclede County man was arrested by sheriff’s deputies for hindering prosecution after he was accused of misleading deputies about his brother’s presence at his residence.

According to the sheriff’s office report, neighbors said an unregistered sex offender was staying at the address. Deputies checked and found the man had an active warrant for failure to register. Deputies went to the residence on April 28. The man’s brother denied that he was present. Deputies then located the man in an open workshop located near the residence and took him into custody.

Deputies then arrested the man’s brother for hindering prosecution. According to the report, he told them he lied about his brother not being at the house because he knew his brother was in trouble and was trying to protect him.
