Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Double jeopardy applies when someone is brought to trial and trial starts and it ends and then they try to try him again for the same offense arising out of the same facts and circumstances at the same time.

He could be charged with failure to register in any county where he was found to be residing. So if he was residing in one county and did not register and then then resided with you part of the time, those are two separate instances and both could be charged.
