Sex offender charged with failing to register

SALEM — A Level 3 sex offender convicted in 2000 of raping a 61-year-old Gloucester woman during the 1980s was arraigned yesterday in Salem District Court on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender.

Robert Beauparlant, 50, who was last known to be living at 79 Flint St., Apt. 2, in Salem, was ordered held on $2,500 bail by Judge Matthew Nestor.

Salem police say Beauparlant was supposed to have re-registered with them on his birthday in June, but he never contacted police and never registered with any other police department. A warrant was issued last summer, and Beauparlant was just arrested, according to court papers.

Beauparlant was a suspect in the 1989 rape at Burnham’s Field in Gloucester for several years but wasn’t charged until 1996. Then, while the case was pending, Beauparlant, who was out on bail, left the state and did not return for two years, according to an account in The Gloucester Daily Times, sister paper to The Salem News.

He was convicted in 2000.

Beauparlant is due back in court on Dec. 4.
