David Bernard Eichacker - Repeat Sex Offender - Molested 5 year old

Wake County sheriff's deputies charged a convicted sex offender Wednesday with the rape and molestation of a 5-year-old child, authorities say.

Deputies arrested David Bernard Eichacker, 32, at his Wendell home and charged him with one felony count each of statutory rape by an adult, statutory sex offense by an adult and attempted statutory sex offense by an adult, Phyllis Stephens, a sheriff's spokeswoman, said this afternoon.

Eichacker is being held at the Wake County jail under a $3 million bond, a jail spokeswoman said.

Eichacker will make his first court appearance at 2 p.m. today.

Sheriff's investigators have accused Eichacker of raping and molesting the 5-year-old between February and May. The sheriff's office began its investigation June 9 after being notified by Wake County Child Protective Services, Stephens said.

Eichacker was sentenced to two years probation on July 29, 2008, in Wake County after he was convicted of indecent liberties with a minor.

Court records indicate that Eichacker was originally charged on May 23, 2008, with felony statutory rape of a child older than 6 years old. He was convicted three months later in Wake County Superior Court of the lesser offense.
In addition to probation, Eichacker was also required to register with the state sex offense registry, pay court costs and pay a fine of $426, state records show.

Eichacker could be sentenced to life in prison without parole if he is convicted of statutory rape, according to state statutes.
