Peter Frank Gregorich - Repeat Sex Offender - Stole Laptops to Download Child Pornography

A registered sex offender accused of stealing laptops from a local company and accessing child pornography has been arrested, court records show.

Peter Frank Gregorich, 48, has been charged with theft, a state jail felony. He is in the Travis County Jail on $10,000 bail, records show.

Two laptops were reported stolen May 10 from public-relations firm Porter Novelli after they were placed in front of a FedEx drop box to be delivered to Boston but never made it to their destination, an arrest affidavit said.
Detectives were able to track the computers to Gregorich using anti-theft software call “Lojack for Laptops” that has a function that can track keystrokes, the affidavit said. The user typed his birth date, e-mail address and phone number and used his Social Security number as a password for a wireless network, the affidavit said. Gregorich searched for child pornography while he was in possession of the laptops, it said.
Gregorich was previously convicted of indecency with a child by exposure in Montgomery County in 2002, records show.

"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."
