Stacey Alan Deines - Repeat Sex Offender - Internet Predator

A registered sex offender was arrested Thursday in Kansas as he arrived at his home with a Sequoyah County girl he is accused of kidnapping, authorities reported.

Stacey Alan Deines, 35, of Florence, Kan., has been a registered sex offender in Kansas since 1998 after being convicted of indecent liberties with a 14-year-old child.

Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart said Deines was arrested around 7:15 a.m. Thursday by the U.S. Marshals Service on the kidnapping complaint and is in Marion County jail in Kansas on a $250,000 bond.

"He's fighting extradition, so we're proceeding with a governor's warrant," Lockhart said.

The kidnapping complaint arose around 2:10 a.m., when the 16-year-old's father called the Sheriff's Office to report his daughter missing.

He had apparently tried unsuccessfully to pursue Deines' truck before making the call.

Investigators learned the girl had been communicating via Facebook and cell phone with Deines, and they found his cell phone number during a search of her room.

From there, Lockhart said, they subpoenaed the phone company's records and started "pinging" Deines' phone to track him.

Around 5 a.m., the U.S. Marshals Service in Oklahoma City made contact with its counterpart in Wichita, Kan., which dispatched deputies to wait for Deines at his home. He showed up with the girl and was promptly arrested, Lockhart said.

The girl was taken into custody by juvenile authorities in Marion County and could not be questioned without her parents, who were expected to arrive around midday Thursday.

Lockhart said there is some concern about whether the girl was injured because Deines' home is about a five-hour drive from Sequoyah County, but it took him eight hours to get home after he picked her up.

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

"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."
