GUILDHALL, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont man who has been on the state’s sex offender registry for more than a decade now faces 25 years to life in prison after his latest conviction.

Forty-five-year-old Gordon Noyes, of Canaan, was convicted Friday of felony aggravated sexual assault on a child for incidents from 2009 through 2013. He also was convicted of lewd lascivious conduct with a child for incidents from 2007 through 2013. The Caledonian Record reports that Noyes was put on the registry after a 2005 conviction also involving a child.


Essex County State’s Attorney Vince Illuzzi said Noyes is the half-brother of Wendell Noyes, who was charged with murder in the 2011 death of his 11-year-old stepdaughter in New Hampshire. A judge dismissed the charge in 2017 after finding him incompetent to stand trial.
