Upon a records check, Officers were advised Carte is a Sex Registrant with prior
convictions for failing to register in Texas, and Tennessee. Carte provided multiple false

and that he had been informed he was no longer required to register. Carte was arrested
without incident, and transported to the Mendocino County Jail.
