Donald Edward Young – Repeat Sex Offender – Habitual Child Molester

Police continued the investigation and on Tuesday charged Young with first-degree statutory sex offense, indecent liberties with a child and crimes against nature. The three charges were all related to crimes the suspect committed this year against a 5-year-old boy who lives in the Old Fayetteville Road area, near Young’s residence, Keel said. The boy is not related to the suspect, the detective added.

Leland police have arrested and charged a 64-year-old man with both failing to register as a sex offender and committing sex crimes against a 5-year-old boy.

Donald Edward Young was required by law to have registered as a sex offender in the state within 10 days of being released from the N.C. Department of Correction, where he served seven years on embezzlement charges, said Leland police Detective John Keel. But after he was released in January 2006, he moved to Southport without letting authorities know that he had previously been convicted of sex crimes against children in Massachusetts and become a registered sex offender in that state, Keel said.

About a year and a half ago, Young moved to Leland, and his latest address was in the 300 block of Old Fayetteville Road, the police detective said. A police investigation revealed Young’s failure to register as a sex offender, and he was arrested on that felony charge on Aug. 5, Keel said.

The boy is not related to the suspect, the detective added.

Young is disabled and did not have a job, said Keel. The suspect’s first court appearance on the new felony charges is set for Friday morning at the Brunswick County courthouse, and he’s being held at the county jail with bond set at $280,000.
