Sex Offender Charged With Being On Facebook

Deputies say a registered sex offender went on Facebook, a violation of his sex offender registry conditions.

John Avery of Newport was charged with accessing and utilizing a social networking site as a registered sex offender.

Carteret County deputies say the 32-year-old is accused of using Facebook prior to heading to jail on other charges. Avery's bond was set at $3,000.

He was originally placed on the registry in 2003 after being convicted of taking indecent liberties with a child.
