Pitt County Sex Offender Back Behind Bars

A man who spent a decade behind bars for a sex crime is locked up again, for not reporting his change of address.

Carl Moore, 43, is behind bars in Pitt County under a $25,000 bond. Moore's criminal record shows he was convicted in Pitt County in 1993 on a second degree sex offense charge. He spent 11 years in prison, from 1994 until 2005.

In February 2010, Moore was charged with failing to register as a sex offender. He spent much of 2011 behind bars for that offense.

Records at the Pitt County Detention Center say Moore was most recently arrested Friday for not reporting a change of address. According to jail records, his address is listed 616 Atlantic in Rocky Mount.

    I hope that the man learns his lesson and we should be extra careful now that some still find it difficult to be responsible enough to report themselves. I am a parent and I am worried that I've been hearing a lot of news like this coming up and so I tried to find solutions and luckily I found one. It's a solution which featured a safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button.

    NC needs tougher laws and then tougher sentences from pansy judges for sex offenders. To those of you digusted by sex offenders - remember as reported by witntv.com in july 07 YOUR TAX DOLLARS pay a convicted admitted felon child molester 185,000 bucks a year. He is a doctor for the state of NC and because he was wealthy and connected he got a state job where they even let him practice medicine on children at Cherry hospital in Goldsboro until witntv outed him, now he works at dept of correction but still has a great paying state job. PLEASE call your legislators and Bev Perdue and tell them we dont want sex offenders in our state government. Search " cherry doctor on leave " july 07 for the facts

    So he has already been arrested previously for trying to remain anonymous (failing to register as a sex offender). I am sure the penalty for failing to report a change of address is minor, but his determination to stay off the radar should warrant something a bit more harsh.

    Ya know if this man didn't learn anything from being locked up for the last ten years why should we ever trust him out here again? Why was his exact crime not published? He should have never gotten out the first time but he did so now shame on the NCDOC for his way too early release. I know my tax dollars are required to keep these people locked away and I for one would gladly pay a few extra cents to know he will never walk free.

    NC has a free database showing the location of all sex offenders. If you are concerned.... google it and see all the offenders....and where they live. Greenville has plenty!

      Here you post this on a story reporting one locked up again for "failure to report address change" NOW ask yourself just how updated and "trustworthy" that "free" database is. Hah ha.

      Probably about the same time when we have registered murderers, registered thieves, or when we have all other criminals registering instead of labeling one particular offense.

        Chris you are so right about that! A person can kill someone and not have to register at all.

          I'd much rather know if a convicted thief lived in my neighborhood.

      I've been asking the same thing for years. But WITN won't put my comments on.

        So true Chris on the thief. I would rather know the homes of the ones with a DWI.
