Sex Offender Arrested After Failing To Register Change Of Address

A convicted sex offender who lived at a Beaufort County shelter is charged with failure to register a change of address.

Washington Police say they discovered back in August that 30-year-old Steven Almond was no longer living at the Zion Shelter in Washington and didn't notify authorities as required by law.

Almond was arrested this week. Bond was set at $1,200.

    @Mike: It is news, and should be. He is a sex offender that failed to comply by the laws of his sentencing. I for one appreciate the picture, so I know what he looks like. I am a woman if he is not a pedophile, which makes it newsworthy to me. If he is a pedophile, I have two daughters - THAT MAKES IT EXTREMELY NEWSWORTHY TO ME. Unfortunately, 'sex offender' is a general term applied to all, it is not broken down into the various degrees of offense.

    The way some of you talk in these posts, I guess NOTHING is newsworthy. How about you just shut off your computer and TV and forget about the news if it's so boring to you.

    If he was living nextdoor to you it would be newsworthy.

    Thanks to local law enforcement for keeping track of this man. I think that anytime a Pedophile is unaccounted for this should be made news. Apparently, you or no one in your family was ever been a victim of a sexual predator. I have, so thanks WITN for keeping us in the know about this man, and any other sexual predators in the future.
