The latest dumbfish to jump into NC’s boat

If you’ll recall not too long ago I started calling North Carolina sex offenders who get caught on social networking sites dumbfish because they can’t stay out of the nets of North Carolina investigators. It is against the law in North Carolina for a registered sex offender to be on a site like Facebook that allows minors as its users.

Anyway today’s dumbfish is 37-year-old Robert Milton Babson, Jr. of Statesville, NC. He was arrested after police received a tip that he had a Facebook profile.

Babson’s previous convictions that landed him on the registry were for taking indecent liberties with a child that he only got for years for and failing to register which he got two years for.

Here’s a thought North Carolina, why not keep them behind bars with real sentences and then you won’t have to worry about them being on Facebook.
