Preliminary hearing set for Providence woman accused of failing to register as a sex offender

Jeena Nilson, 58, arrested and charged with six counts of failing to register as a sex offender, a third-degree felony.

LOGAN — A judge has scheduled a preliminary hearing for a 58-year-old Providence woman who was arrested back in June and charged with six counts of failing to register as a sex offender, a third-degree felony.

Jeena Nilson appeared in 1st District Court Monday afternoon with her attorneys. They asked the court for a two-hour hearing when prosecutors will present their evidence in the case.

Judge Kevin Allen set a hearing date for February 16 and will then determine whether there is sufficient evidence to bind Nilson over for trial.

In November 2002, Nilson was sentenced to one-to-15 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of sex abuse of a child, a second-degree felony.
