Jack Deloy Edwards – Repeat 70 year old sex offender

A Raeford man was sentenced to at least 40 years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to charges he sexually molested and photographed two young girls.

Jack Deloy Edwards, 70, of the 7000 block of Fayetteville Road, pleaded guilty in a Moore County court to two counts of statutory sexual offense, two counts of indecent liberties with a child, two counts of first degree sexual exploitation of a minor, and 99 counts each of second and third degree sexual exploitation of a minor, said Hoke County Assistant District Attorney Mike Hardin.

Edwards was arrested in September after the Hoke County Sheriff’s Office found several photos and digital video of child pornography in his home. The pictures showed two girls, ages 7 and 12, being molested in a Cameron-area home in July 2006, Hardin said.

A friend of Edwards tipped off lawmen after accidentally seeing some of the photos during a visit to his house.

Hardin said Edwards was charged in two counties — Hoke County, where the pictures were found, and Moore County, where the incidents took place.

Edwards was originally going to be tried in Hoke

County, but Hardin requested the venue be changed in January after an indictment by a Moore County grand jury.

Hardin said Edwards also faces charges in Hoke County stemming from incidents in 1994. Edwards was charged with statutory sexual offenses, indecent liberties with a minor and sexual activities with a minor, Hardin said.
