    A New Hampshire man seeking to have his name removed from the state's sex offender registry has been arrested after going on Facebook.

    Norman St. Hilaire of Manchester was arrested on Nov. 25, according to the Union Leader.

    St. Hilaire failed to report to authorities that he created the social media account, a requirement by state law.

    St. Hilaire is a Tier 3 sex offender, who pleaded guilty in 1987 to two counts of felonious sexual assault, according to the newspaper.

    Last February, the New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled in favor of St. Hilaire's request to allow him to petition for his removal from the public sex offender registry list.

    He will be arraigned on Dec. 31.
