A two-judge panel ruled Tuesday that the stiffer penalty given to Charles Hunt of Union Beach was appropriate after he failed to register as a sex offender when he was released from prison in 2011.

According to the Star Ledger, the appellate judges found that hunt’s failure-to-register offense was a new crime he committed in 2011 after the state legislature changed the law in 2007, affirming his five-year probationary sentence.
