Alphonzo Hill - Repeat Sex Offender - Internet Predator

Deputies said a registered sex offender has been arrested again, accused of having sex with a teenage girl and fathering her child.

Investigators said they have enough evidence to put the 34-year-old back in prison for his second sex-related crime against a child.

Alphonzo Hill, pleaded guilty in 2000 to charges of corrupting a minor. He spent time in prison and then as a registered sex offender.

Sgt. Christopher Clark said, “Can I say I’m surprised? No. But, it is disturbing.”

Clark said it is crimes against children that really affect the people in his office.

Deputies said they received a report last fall that Hill, of Dayton, was having a relationship with a teen.

Clark said, “The report indicated the 15-year-old and 34-year-old had sexual intercourse and she became pregnant with his baby.”

Deputies investigated and learned that the two met on the website MocoSpace and began a short relationship.

“We confirmed through the juvenile that they did meet on the web and had sexual intercourse,” Clark said.

Investigators said they believe the two met several times at a Springfield apartment complex. They believe that Hill is the father of teen’s child with DNA tests pending.

Authorities said they do all they can, but can’t police the entire World Wide Web.

Clark said, “Unfortunately, we are seeing more of it because of access to social websites make it so easy for predators to go after young children.”

In convicted, Hill faces up to five years in prison the unlawful sexual conduct charge.

"25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years"
.........Sarah Tofte

"On average most sex offenders are never caught again for a new sex offense, after five years, between 10 and 15 percent of sex offenders are detected, often convicted, of committing a new sex offense. If you follow them for ten years the rates go up somewhat, if you follow them as long as we’ve been able to follow them, which is about 20 years, the rates go up to somewhere between 30 to 40 percent of the total sample will eventually be caught for a new sex offense."
