Well, this was not news I was hoping to get as the father of three young girls in a small neighborhood full of other children, as well.

Just purchased and moved into a new home, and found out via public search that a RSO moved in across the street. My timing must have been extraordinarily bad, as his date of registration was 8/17/2015, and was just around the time we purchased the home. His registration date and our purchase date were so close, it doesn't look like his information had hit the state's website when I was doing my due diligence for the home purchase.

His registration period is "lifetime", so that tells me that his crime was forcible, or involved a minor. His case was settled with 10 years of community supervision per the states website.

Couple of interesting points I have determined, thus far, is that neither his name, nor his ethnicity match that of the owner of the property from the County's tax rolls.

Interestingly, I walked over and introduced myself to who I presumed to be the owner of the home in question while he was out working in the yard prior to having any knowledge of this. The name he exchanged with me matches what is in on the tax rolls, so he seems legit. The RSO registered at that address seems too old at 40ish to be this guys son, the RSO is clearly of Asian descent from his photograph and surname, and the property is owner is clearly not. Guess the RSO could be adopted, or similar, but the surnames are not in the same ballpark.

I also haven't actually seen the RSO at/around the residence after almost a month of living in the neighborhood.

I have noticed some somewhat odd events like a car with an occupant parked in front of the home for hours at a time.

We have a deputy constable who patrols through the area most mornings. I waved, and he rolled down the window for a conversation this morning. He said he was aware of it, and suggested calling the Sheriff's Office to speak with Sex Crimes unit to what information they might be able to share.

The neighborhood is small at only ten total houses, so I'm thinking a discreet conversation with the other parents might be in order, just to make sure everyone is aware. I will give the Sherrif's office a call late today or tomorrow to pursue that angle.

Anyone else ever dealt with this, or any of our resident LEO's have any suggestions?

Go to the Armory section and look at the home security section at the security camera suggestions. You can't install a camera looking over the guys fence into his backyard, but you can definitely film your front yard and the street and the front of his house that you can see normally see from the street.

I'd go there next. If he's renting and he doesn't like it, he can move.

We have two in the neighborhood. I have never seen either of them outside. DVR/Cameras and monitored security system is in place. If you look on the sex offender registry, they go into detail about the specific charges.

A former employer's son is an RSO. The girl he dated in high school was a few years younger than he was. Her parents caught the two of them drinking, turned him in, now he is an RSO. He continued to see the girl after she turned 18.

Good suggestion. I've got them, but I think I will adjust the aim a bit now.

See if he is on supervision Probation or parole. there is not much they can do about him living there since they had to approve the address. But they would like a extra set of eyes on him. There a Whole lot of special conditions a RSO has on supervision the general public does not know about. He could be in violation of any number of those. If he is on supervision make contact with his P.O. they can tell you what they are

Looks like this guy was rung up for sexual assault of child on a 14 year old male.

Is it possible the RSO listed this address without the owner's knowledge? Perhaps the RSO registered there because he knows the property and/or owner, but doesn't actually live there?

That did run through my mind. Another reason I'm going to call the SO and see what I can find out, if anything. Will be tomorrow, though. Just got off work now.

It's not the ones that register and comply with the law that you need to be concerned about as much as the ones that move in that are in violation.

When we lived in NY, they would send home a letter every time one moved into the area with a picture, age, description, charges, outcome,etc and also what level he/she was, level 3 is the highest risk of repeat. We had one move in across the street from us! He was a wack job, always off his meds,cops coming down, his offense was with a 11yr old girl if I remember correctly. He was scared of me, used to run inside when he saw me but would give woman a hard time, tried to intimidate my wife, held an axe and just looked at her and went into his house. cops did nothing said it wasn't illegal to have an axe in your house. Fuck them!. If he would have stepped across that street.....................well you get my point. BUT what comes around, goes around...after we left the house and I rented it, the tenant called and said somethings going on other there, cops, fire dept, all there and blocking off the street, well since I owned the house we all went there with front row seats, HE WAS DEAD! started a fire in the house and killed himself from smoke inhilation, they never did determine as far as I know if it was accidental or arson. Karma's a bitch, when they carried the stretcher out the whole neighborhood was clapping! The cops knew, the fire dept. guys were all shocked. Not anybody else.

Sure you can.

If he complains, tell him that it's just a dummy camera, or that part of the image is blacked out to preserve his privacy.

Incidentally, I just finished installing one of these systems.

@OP, sorry to hear this is in your neighborhood, it prompted me to search my zip and that of my parents.

The immediate area is clear for me, learned that a guy a year ahead of me in high school is now registered in 77546 in relative proximity to my parents

port forward through your router record on as many pc's as u want

dl ip camviewer for phone

Those of you that have security cameras be sure to learn how they work in every detail. You have a useless recording system until it is tweaked by somebody familiar with the brand and model of DVR. BE the guy familiar with the brand and model of DVR. If you pay somebody to have one installed, most states require a security license. Check them out BEFORE the install. The installation tech can add their own user ID and you could have some perv playing games with your cameras. If you pay a company to install a camera system, tell them not to enter their own user ID so they can "trouble shoot" remotely. Most manufacturers have this available. Use the MFG tech support if needed. If you find an extra user ID that you did not enter yourself, call the law.

As a former security tech/sales/manager, it is not the security companies responsibility to teach you every nuance of your system. Read the manual, and read all of the available online info.

You can find out who takes care of the registration at the SO and they can do a house check to see if he's staying there, if not then it's a felony. I used to reg the offenders at a PD and we did checks at various times to see if they lived where they registered at, makes an easy case if they're not.
Link Posted: 10/15/2015 12:43:22 PM EST
That's exactly what I came here to post and he beat me. If he's registered at that address, then he better be living there or he's already in violation.
Link Posted: 10/15/2015 8:10:15 PM EST
I would not beat myself up about not being able to find this out when you bought the house. If you had been in that house for 30 years there is no guarantee that an RSO could not move in next door to you. Keep your kids close and know exactly where they are every second of the day (any parent should do this), and when you feel they are old enough, inform them of the situation.

It is hard to believe anything you read on the internet. A story is a story. Some people don't let facts get in the way of a good story. Lots of chest thumping going on on this thread. We are protective of our kids.
As far as my former employer's son, I would like to think they were not lying to me. I would have not worked for the family if I found it was a lie. Both families involved had money for legal help as needed. The kids had been together for some time prior to the trouble between the two families. That is not in question.

I just put one of these in at a business location where I don't have a lot of stuff set up yet.

http://www.nellyssecurity.com/cameras/hi-def-cameras/ip-cameras/2-mp/hikvision-2cd2120f-iw-outdoor-wifi-wireless-hd-2mp-ip-dome-security-camera.html

It's got an internal 64 gig card to record locally for about a day, but I've got it setup to detect motion like a deer cam and it emails me photos any time someone sets it off during the time period I specify. So it basically starts shooting still photos when my staff leaves and sends pics to my phone.

When I finally get a real system installed, they will plug right in to the ip based DVR.

Does not mean he was released yet. SO's go thru a diversion/counseling program first. Watch and see who shows up in the coming months.
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 3:35:43 PM EST
Agree that there are a lot of false charges against men out there. I went through a divorce and the ex would call the cops every single time I went by to pick up the kids for visitation, birthdays, etc. I would usually just wait in the car, but she would tell the cops that "I scared her".. So she built a little history "on me" at the sheriffs office. Insane.

In this case, the prosecution may have known the charges were bogus, and offered him probation in return for not prosecuting. Who knows.

I'd still be a little careful. In fact, I would go meet him and talk with him. Abraham Lincoln said the best way to destroy an enemy is to make him your friend.

May not go that far as to make him your friend, but I would not make an immediate and irreversible conclusion based on only part of the story.
