Jefferson D. McGee - Repeat Sex Offender - Arrested for luring girl

A report says a registered sex offender admitted to talking with a teenage girl and knowing how old she was after being arrested for trying to pick her up at a bus stop.

Police in Racine arrested Jefferson D. McGee, 47, on Monday evening for child enticement and a parole violation.

According to the Racine Journal Times, the parents of a girl, 15, called and told them a man met their daughter at a bus stop at 9:00 a.m. and tried to get the girl to join him for a drink at his apartment.

At first, he allegedly asked whether she wanted to meet him for breakfast, then asked about the drink. Police say he gave the girl his name, address and phone number.

The girl told her parents, who informed police.

Officers checked the number and address and found McGee as a registered sex offender who was ordered not to have any unsupervised visits with people under the age of 19.

The girl then identified McGee's photo in a lineup.

McGee was convicted of the rape of a 12-year-old girl in March of 1999.
