Wayde E. Ephraim - Repeat Sex Offender - This is Prevention

A Caldwell man was arrested for enticement of a child over the internet Friday.
During an investigation into online enticement, Ada County detectives chatted with a man later identified as Wayde E. Ephraim, 40, of Caldwell. Ephraim believed he was talking with a 14-year-old female and arranged to meet the teen for sex.
A warrant was issued for Ephraim’s arrest based on the information gathered during the investigation, and police served that warrant Friday at Ephraim's home in the 300 block of North Michigan in Caldwell.

Ephraim was taken into custody and booked into the Canyon County Jail on a $250,000 felony warrant for enticement of a minor over the internet.

Ephraim is a Registered Sex Offender in Idaho. The Idaho State Police Central Sex Offender Registry shows Ephraim was convicted of Lewd Conduct with a Minor Child under 16 in 1988 in Valley County.

This case is one of the ongoing investigations conducted by Ada County Sheriff's detectives working as part of the Idaho Attorney General's Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

"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."
