Tony Hughes - Repeat Sex Offender - Can't Leave Young Girls Alone

A registered sex offender was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly had sex with a girl several times, police said.

Tony Hughes faces 11 counts of statutory rape and sex offenses involving a 14-year-old girl. Officers said the alleged incidents happened between December 2009 and January 2010.

Hughes, a registered sex offender, was previously convicted in 2003 of taking indecent liberties with a minor, according to the North Carolina Offender Registry. He was released from jail in 2005.

"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."
