NC Lawmaker Works To Close Sex Offender Loophole…

NC Lawmaker works to close sex offender loophole

Lawmaker works to close sex offender loophole

RALEIGH (WTVD) — After the I-Team of ABC11 exposed a loophole in North Carolina’s sex offender registry law, Representative Tim Moore (R-Cleveland County) promised to help close it.

Our investigation revealed sex offenders convicted of things like rape and sexually abusing children are living in North Carolina, but they don’t appear on the state’s sex offender registry.

Triangle resident Reem Baloch contacted the I-Team after discovering the father of her child was convicted of a sex offense but doesn’t appear on the state registry. Instead, she found him in the national database.

The I-Team then discovered there are 32 sex offenders in our three largest counties – Wake, Durham and Cumberland – who appear on the national registry, but not on the North Carolina registry.

Under state law, sex offenders who were convicted or released from prison before 1996 – and moved to North Carolina before December of 2006 – do not need to register in North Carolina.

Representative Moore has now introduced a bill in the Legislature that would fix the legal loophole. House Bill 726 would require sex offender registration for out of state convictions.

“We need to close that loophole and ensure those folks are required to register,” said Moore.

Respectfully submitted from  WTVD-TV/DT, Steve Daniels.

    If you tell any court appointment worker about sexual abuse and you lose custody to your abuser, then you know that your CPS worker or Lawyer or Law Guardian involved in child trafficking Rings. They will bribe the courts to give custody to the batterer and then use the children for their child trafficking rings.

    Say that a 30 year old man has consensual sex with a 16 year old. He gets convicted, loses everything and ends up on the street after prison.

    He can’t find a job or a place to live. Because he is a labeled a child rapist, he becomes a complete outcast unable to maintain healthy relationships with friends and or woman.

    I’m sure that such treatment toward this individual will make things better for all of us.

    Let me tell you something Miguel Torrez… This 30 year old man who had “consensual” sex with a 16 year old needs to go to jail and stay there… the fact that he even gets released after prison is a joke!.. There should be NO RELEASE FROM THE START!!!.There is NO SUCH THING AS CONSENSUAL SEX WITH A 16 YEAR OLD!!!!!!. That is a child!!!. that is called rape!.. that is called child molestation!.. that is called sexual offender who should go away for as long as possible and if for some ungodly reason gets released should be on every damn sex offender registry local and national because everyone knows that they do it again and there is no such thing as rehabilitation!!!!!!. So Miguel, I am so sorry that this poor rapist can’t get a job or live or have healthy relationships but maybe he should have thought about that before he raped a damn 16 year old CHILD !!!!!!!!!

    WOW the story on Reem Baloch interesting irony is that she is with another offender that was charged with indecent liberties on a minor that was living in the home and plead guilty to assault on a female to keep from a long court case and to keep from having a felony conviction on his record. This happened in craven county in 2003. He still continues to victimize his past victim. Like i said interesting irony and have a hard time feeling sorry for MS Baloch or now Ms Suitt. She speaks about not knowing she really didnt check sources very well on her now current spouse Brad Leonard Suitt.
