Charles Edward Smith Jr – Repeat Sex Offender – Wanted to teach girl "how to love"

A registered sex offender will spend almost a decade more behind bars after violating his probation.

Charles Edward Smith Jr., 58, of Woodsboro, is serving 10 years in the Maryland Division of Correction for offering to teach a 7-year-old girl about sex in 2007. He pleaded guilty in February to sexual solicitation of a minor.

Friday, Circuit Court Judge John H. Tisdale ordered Smith to serve an additional 81Ú2 years.

The February conviction was a violation of his probation for a May 2006 conviction for a third-degree sex offense that occurred in 2004.

The 81Ú2 years had been previously suspended. The time will be served consecutively, which means he will be in his mid-70s when he is to be released.

In October 2007, the 7-year-old’s mother asked Smith to watch the child. A neighbor who knew Smith was a registered sex offender saw him take the girl from his car into his North Second Street apartment and called police.

Deputies with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office obtained a warrant to search Smith’s residence and found notes he’d written to the girl.

Phrases in the notes included “I want you to know how to have sex,” “You are ready for sex,” “I can teach you,” and “Don’t tell anyone.”

Smith’s 2007 arrest came five months into a five-year period of probation for the 2006 conviction.

James Dallas Hill – Repeat Sex Offender Attacks Jogger


A registered sex offender will spend at least 15 years in prison for attacking a female jogger in Cedar City earlier this year.

James Dallas Hill, 22, was originally charged with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery and aggravated sexual assault, all first-degree felonies, and one class B misdemeanor for damaging/interrupting a communication device.

In an agreement in 5th District Court, Hill pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault in return for state prosecutors dropping the other charges. He received a 15-years-to-life prison sentence earlier this week and must pay a $10,000 fine and restitution, the amount of which has not yet been determined.

According to a probable cause statement, a Cedar City woman noticed Hill following her while she jogged last February. She tried to call 911, but Hill knocked her cell phone from her hand and forced her to the ground by her throat. He pulled out a knife, and she kicked and screamed until she broke free.

She ran and found another jogger to assist her.

Hill has two out-of-state convictions for forcible sexual abuse in 2002 and a Utah conviction for failure to register as a sex offender.

Kenneth Leon Mills- Repeat Sex Offender – "Uncle Santa Claus"

A convicted sex offender from Curry County has been charged with the criminal sexual penetration of a Tucumcari 9-year-old, according to a press release from the Tucumcari Police Department.

Kenneth Leon Mills, 30, was arrested Tuesday and pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to the charges before the Quay County Magistrate Court. Mills is being held in the Quay County Detention Center. His bail is set at $250,000.

Mills is charged with two felony counts of criminal sexual penetration of a minor, kidnapping and aggravated burglary.

“Mills who had absconded from Curry County and failed to register (as a sex offender) was picked up after officers responded to a reported sexual assault in South Tucumcari,” the police press release said.

Tucumcari Police Chief Roger Hatcher said a warrant for failure to register as a sex offender had been issued by Curry County and that warrant was served on Mills following his arrest in Tucumcari.

Mills has been traveling back and forth between Clovis and Tucumcari, Hatcher said.

The child’s mother said a man she knew “had entered the residence and then she said he had raped her daughter,” according to court documents.

The 9-year-old told her mother she had been taken outside to a dumpster where the attack occurred, court documents stated.

“She told her mother that he told her not to scream or say anything to her mother because he would kill her mother. … He told her not to be scared and he called himself Uncle Santa Claus,” the documents said.

Hatcher said it’s believed Mills lifted up a window near the front door of the residence, opened the front door from the inside and then “went in and took the child outside.”

It’s not certain if Mills released the child or the child ran back into the house to her mother’s bedroom. The mother then called police, Hatcher said.

New Mexico’s sex offender registry reports MIlls was convicted of criminal sexual penetration in 1998 in Curry County. He registered as a sex offender in September 2003.

“There is no excuse for the violence this child has suffered,” Hatcher said in the news release. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family and I hope we have given them some sort of peace and security with the prompt arrest of Kenneth Mills.”

Dennis Nolan – Repeat Sex Offender He was searching for a victim

Conviction date: 7/12/1999
Attempted Sexual Abuse-1st Degree
Offender’s age at conviction: 42
Victim Age: 10

A Level 3 sex offender who was quizzed by Skaneateles police after he was reported watching children in a park through binoculars has been arrested by Syracuse police.

Dennis Nolan, 51, was accused of failing to register his address with local authorities as required by law. He is being held without bail at the Onondaga County Justice Center.

Nolan was picked up on a warrant issued Aug. 19, said Sgt. Tom Connellan, speaking for Syracuse police. Nolan failed to register his address every 90 days, Connellan said.

Nolan was taken into custody Wednesday, Connellan said.

Nolan served time after a 1999 conviction for first-degree attempted sexual abuse in an incident involving a 10-year-old boy, according to the state. A Level 3 sex offender is one the court determined to be a high risk of committing another sex crime.

Neighbors of Austin Park in Skaneateles had noticed him for several days parked near the playground.

Skaneateles police talked to Nolan on Aug. 5 but could do nothing but ask him to move on, police Chief H. Lloyd Perkins said.
