Registered sex offender indicted for obstructing justice

A 39-year-old registered sex offender was indicted by a grand jury last month for obstructing justice. The incident that resulted in the charge actually occurred in June at Fuquay-Varina Elementary School.

The man, who reportedly lives in a Raleigh, North Carolina, apartment complex, gave investigators a letter from a school principal that allegedly gave the man permission to be at the school on June 10. The letter, however, was forged and was given to investigators in the hope that he wouldn't be arrested.

The obstructing justice charge is based on common law. The man's bail was set at $25,000, which has been posted.

The sex offender registry shows that the man was convicted of assault on a child and kidnapping a child in August 2009. He is to register with law enforcement for at least 10 years.

The sex offender registry can provide the public with a lot of information about someone convicted of a sex crime. The purpose is to keep law enforcement -- and the public -- aware of where these convicted individuals live and work. Some offenders are required to register for life, depending on the offense for which they were convicted.

For those who are required to register, it is important to understand all of the requirements that are in place. For example, there are restrictions as to where a registered sex offender can live and work. He or she is not allowed to be on the grounds of a day care or a school. Because of the restrictions associated with the sex offender registry, some offenders may want to petition the state after a certain period of time to be removed from the registry. If you would like to petition the state, an attorney can provide more information.
