A Grundy County man who failed to register as a sex offender was sentenced last week. 

Matthew Clower, 39, of Morris pled guilty to violating the Illinois Sex Offender Registry with at least five offenses, a class two felony and was sentenced to five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
