Deputies Charge Sex Offender; Had Social Networking Web Site

Deputies have charged a registered sex offender with more charges after authorities discovered he had an account on a social networking web site.

Christopher Rossio was arrested on two counts of 3rd degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Lenoir County deputies say the charges came after a five month investigation after they got a complaint Rossio had the online account. Deputies say they found that Rossio had used a false name for the networking site.

Rossio, who's been on the sex registry since 2007, is in the Lenoir County jail on a $250,000 bond.

The sex offender website says Rossio, whose last address was in Grifton, was convicted in 2006 on two counts of second degree sexual exploitation of a minor. He served 18 months in prison.

Deputies say additional charges are pending.
