Brian Morris - Repeat Sex Offender - Church Chaperone?

A registered child sex offender is back in jail and accused of trying to have sex with a 14-year-old girl he met as a church chaperone.

Sheriff’s deputies in Washington County, Indiana arrested 30-year-old Brian Morris of Pekin, Indiana on Monday afternoon.

Morris is charged with attempted child solicitation.

Police say they got involved after Morris allegedly texted the girl inappropriately.

They say Morris then tried to set up a sexual encounter with the girl at a Washington County High School where he was arrested.

"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."
