The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says a registered sex offender is charged with having a Facebook page.
The sheriff's office says crimestoppers received a tip that 52-year-old Denise McNair of Clay Bottom School Road in Blounts Creek had a Facebook page, which is illegal for registered sex offenders.
After investigating the sheriff's office charged McNair with one count of a sex offender using a social website.
McNair turned herself in and was released on $15,000 unsecured bond.
The NC Sex Offender Registry shows McNair was convicted of indecent liberties with a minor in 2004.
