North Carolina Man Becomes Repeat Sex Offender

According to a sheriff's report, a convicted North Carolina sex offender has been charged with a second sex offense. Brandon Craig Hardy, 26, is accused of molesting a preschooler. He is also accused of moving to a new residence without notifying authorities.

Hardy, of Wagram, was charged last week with two counts of first-degree sex offense with a child and one count of failure to notify authorities of an address change.

The victim of the sexual molestation is four years old.

Hardy became a registered sex offender in 2000, when, at the age of 16, he was convicted of two counts of indecent liberties with a minor.

North Carolina state law provides that a sex offense with a child charge is reserved for adults 18 years of age or older who have sexual contact with an individual under the age of 13.

Under North Carolina General Statutes, the crime of sexual offense with a child is a B1 felony. This crime is punishable by a minimum sentence of 25 years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison. Also, individuals convicted of sexual offense of a child must be tracked by satellite-based monitoring for the rest of their lives.

Registered sex offenders in Scotland County must register and confirm their addresses twice a year with the sheriff's office. Captain Kevin Howell oversees the Scotland County sex offender registry. Howell states that the address confirmation rule is strictly enforced, and the sheriff's office needs to know of any change of address within three days.
