Clifford Deed – Repeat Sex Offender


A quick-thinking teenage girl who was home alone in east Stockton managed to avoid harm by locking herself in a bathroom and calling police after a registered sex offender broke into her house, police said.

Police arrested parolee Clifford Deed at 9:15 a.m. Tuesday after he forced his way into the house.

Authorities said Deed kicked in the back door, at which time the 15-year-old hid in the bathroom.

The girl remained calm and called 911 as Deed burglarized the house, police said.

At one point, Deed attempted to force his way into the bathroom but the girl held her body against the door and prevented him from entering, police said.

Officers soon arrived and arrested Deed.

Prior to the arrest, Deed was being housed at the the Stockton Motor Inn on East Charter Way along with other parolees.

Police said Deed told them he was walking around this neighborhood and just decided to break into the home.

Deed was booked into jail on suspicion of burglary and a parole hold.

Andrew Scot Coslett – Repeat Sex Offender on MySpace

The mother of a 12-year-old girl researched a Longmont man who contacted the girl on My-Space and discovered he is a sex offender who failed to register, according to police.

Longmont Police Cmdr. Tim Lewis said on Wednesday that officers arrested Andrew Scot Coslett, 30, on suspicion of failing to register as a sex offender and are investigating his online conduct with the girl.

Lewis stopped short of calling the online conversations between Coslett and the girl “sexual.”

“We don’t like the context of them,” Lewis said. “They were of an inappropriate nature.”

Lewis said Coslett knew the girl and sought her out on the social-networking site. The girl’s age was not in question and Coslett did not seek to hide his identity with the girl, Lewis said.

Coslett was convicted in 2000 of attempted sexual assault on a child in Jefferson County.

In that case, Coslett was arrested as part of a sting when he showed up to a meeting place arranged on the Internet anticipating sex with a 14-year-old girl. Instead, he met police officers.

He was sentenced to three years in the Colorado Department of Corrections and is required to register as a sex offender.

Lewis said the Longmont girl’s mother did exactly what she needed to do to protect her daughter.

“This is what we ask parents to do — know what their kids are doing and and be involved in their lives,” he said.

Police are investigating whether Coslett was communicating with any other children. His MySpace display name is “drewssiffer,” according to police.
