Sex offender aquitted of failing to comply charge

Obviously the police, when checking registrants' homes, has no sort of message system "get back to me" and instead falsely charges registrants w/a crime.

6-22-2013 Arizona:

A registered sex offender was acquitted of charges in Circuit Court on Monday.

Chad Everette Brown, a level 3 sex offender, had been charged with failure to comply with sex offender reporting requirements.

Lt. Paul Rice of the Van Buren County sheriff’s office testified that he had received information that Brown no longer lived at the address provided to the sheriff’s office. He said he went to the home on Prim Rose Lane in the Burnt Ridge area several times in March 2012 to speak with Brown and was never able to find him home. A warrant for Brown’s arrest was issued March 29, 2012, according to court documents.

Brown’s sister and mother testified in the bench trial before Judge Charles E. Clawson that Brown worked long hours away from the home, but did in fact live there. Clawson acquitted Brown of the charge. ..Source.. by VB Democrat
