Convicted Sex Offender Faces New Charge

A registered sex offender convicted of rape faces new charges.

Clarence Kevin Thigpen, 43 years-old, of North Market Street in Washington was arrested in New Jersey for failing to notify authorities of a change of address as required by law.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says it received a report in September that Thigpen had moved. He was arrested in New Jersey and brought back to Beaufort County to face the charge of failing to register a change of address.

    I personally think the registry is a waste. Some people are on it who haven't even had sex/physical contact with a minor. They should make the charges more clear and even then it doesn't mean they were ever guilty in the first place!

    By cover of darkness, these perverts can be any where they choose..Teach your children, lock your house, have a gun. If one comes in, Blow him away. Pure Justice without the tax payers expense...

    The officials are doing their best to keep tabs on these offenders. However, the public is encouraged to notify the authories if they suspect an offender is not in compliance with the law. Better yet, If you believe that a known predator is breaking the law- make an anomynous call.

    this is a big problem...this registry is already not doing its job properly..people use it as a weapon against supposed offenders because some of the people registered do not have their charges posted, and then the ones who are reportedly living in my neighborhood on the registry don't live in the homes they have listed....but the registry hasn't changed in months for my town...why aren't these people being checked up on? The registry is intended to give people peace of mind about their neighborhoods but it only makes me worry more when I know the offenders are roaming somewhere else unchecked.
