DEKALB COUNTY, AL (WRCB) -- A pair of sex offenders are in trouble in Northeast Alabama for failing to register with the state, as required by law, with one of them in further trouble after being arrested on a variety of drug charges.

Brandon Wayne Wilemon, 30, was arrested on December 22 in Dekalb County for Unlawful Manufacturing of Controlled Substance, Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance and Drug Paraphernalia.
