Escaped sex offender and four-time felon from St. Tammany parish jail captured in Michigan


A registered sex offender with four felony convictions who escaped from the St. Tammany Parish jail Covington jail on Aug. 18, 2007 shortly after he was sentenced to serve a life sentence for attempted carjacking — was captured in Michigan this Friday and is heading back to Louisiana to serve out the remainder of his life term.

Kentucky native and sometimes construction worker, Tony Edward Massie, 44, was arrested in Garden City, Mich. for disorderly conduct, Sheriff Jack Strain said.

During processing in Michigan, Massie allegedly gave the arresting police officer a false name, but as it turns out, the sheriff’s office had already transmitted a photograph to Michigan law enforcement authorities and Massie’s fingerprints were already on file with a national fingerprint identification system – and the Federal Bureau of Investigation had issued multiple communications bearing Massie’s picture since his escape.

A sergeant with Garden City police noticed a similarity between the arrestee and the photograph, Strain said.

A quick check of Massie’s fingerprints confirmed his former classification as a Department of Corrections inmate and his status as a fugitive from St. Tammany Parish.

On Aug. 20, 2007, a state arrest warrant was issued by the 22nd Judicial District Court, Parish of St. Tammany, based on Massie’s escape. A federal warrant was issued for Massie’s arrest on Aug. 21, 2007, by the United States District Court, Eastern District of Louisiana, after Massie was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid confinement.

Registered Sex offender arrested


Brad Rokos is accused of obscene online contact with an underaged girl.

Police arrested a registered sex offender Thursday for allegedly seeking sexual contact with an underaged girl and e-mailing obscene photos.

Brad James Rokos, 40, of Petoskey was arraigned Friday in Lenawee County District Court on felony counts of attempted accosting a child for immoral purposes and using a computer to commit a crime and three misdemeanor counts of attempted furnishing obscene materials to a child. Bond was set at $101,500, and a preliminary examination was scheduled for Nov. 26.

Adrian Police Detective Vincent Emrick said he posed as an underage girl online and was contacted by Rokos. Three times Rokos sent Emrick obscene photos of himself and they twice arranged for him to meet Emrick’s underage persona.

“Both times he claimed something would come up, so I paid him a visit,” Emrick said.

Rokos worked in the information technology department for a company in Petoskey and sent the photos from work, Emrick said.

According to the Illinois sex offender registry, Rokos was convicted of criminal sexual conduct with a person younger than 18 in Cook County but it does not say when the offense took place. The Michigan sex offender registry shows the offense as having been with someone younger than 13. Michigan law requires registered sex offenders from other states to register in Michigan if they move here.
