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.
