As I’ve said before, I’m not a big fan of North Carolina’s law that bans sex offenders from social networking sites. I think it does nothing to prevent unregistered offenders from approaching kids and there are so many ways around the ban.
However, as I’ve also said before it seems that it does catch some dumbfish in its net. Kind of like how even a blind squirrel can find a nut.
Anyway, we have two more dumbfish to tell you about today and they would be Dwayne Anthony Bonds of Richfield, North Carolina and Ronnie Monroe Grant, Jr. of Lincoln County, North Carolina. They were both busted for being sex offenders on Facebook.
Grant was sentenced on June 6, 2003 on a conviction of taking indecent liberties with a minor. He served a 30-day active sentence and was placed on 60 months probation. Grant registered as a sex offender in July of 2003 and is required to serve a 10-year registration period.
Again, how stupid do you have to be to be caught like this? If they say you can’t be around a school you make sure you’re not around a school. Why can’t you do the same with Facebook?
If they kept sex offenders behind bars with real sentences this wouldn’t be an issue.
