Donald Edward Turner - Repeat Sex Offender - Strangles Woman

Asheville police charged a registered sex offender with assaulting a woman.

Donald Edward Turner, 35, of Charlotte Street, Asheville, was charged with assault by strangulation and ordered held without bond, according to an arrest warrant.

A Buncombe County magistrate said in a bond recommendation that the woman required medical attention for bruises and Turner has a history of assaultive behavior.

The assault occurred during an argument after the woman learned of Turner’s prior sex offenses, the magistrate said. He was convicted in 2004 of taking indecent liberties with a child.

"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."
