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.

Michael David Williamson – Repeat Sex Offender – Hiding out, now busted for Child Porn


Georgia Bureau of Investigation officers arrested 62 year old Michael David Williamson at his home on Highway 193. According to an affidavit, Williamson possessed numerous images of children engaged in intercourse and oral sex. Officers confiscated two computers along with floppy disks and DVDS reportedly filled with the images.

82 year old Lucille Paris is Williamson neighbor. She says he lived at home with his mother, who is distraught about the charges he’s facing. “We’ll she said that he was on the computer a lot is all she knew” said Paris.

Records show Williamson never registered as sex offender in Georgia. In California, he’s a convicted child molester and has failed to register as a sex offender since 1996.

The people who knew him tell us that’s not the person they knew. Paris says the accused sexual predator would often cook home cooked meals for her.

“The boy always cooked and clean the house done everything like that for his mother. If he cooked extra and didn’t eat it, he’d bring me something, you know to eat so that was very thoughtful I thought” said Paris.

Investigators believe Williamson has been living in Walker County in obscurity since 1999. Williamson is being held in the Walker County Jail. No bond has been set.

Charles Schibilla – Repeat Sex Offender Trolling Garage Sales for Victims


A Phoenix man is behind bars, accused of sexually abusing young girls.

Nevertheless it is where he found his victims at garage sales that is really disturbing. We know of two attacks, both in central Phoenix between 7th and 16th Streets and between Van Buren and McDowell.

Phoenix police fear there could be more victims. Neighbors witnessed when police arrested the man but they had no idea what kind of trouble he was in.

Charles Schibilla is accused of fondling three girls ages 9, 11, and 13. He is also a level three registered sex offender, the highest risk to the community.

Police say Schibilla went to two different garage sales in the central Phoenix area on June 21 and August 16.

Pretending to be looking for a shirt for his daughter, the 57-year-old allegedly asked the victims to model the shirts before fondling their breasts. The victims told their parents and they called police.

Neighbors say that Schibilla had been living at his residence for about two years and now they hope he does not return.

Charles Schibilla is charged with five counts of child abuse.

Gary Glitter – Unremorseful Paedophile – Returns to a world that no longer wants him

Glitter, like many child sexual abusers, has failed to demonstrate remorse for the sexual offences he has been convicted of, and as such he remains at a “high risk” of reoffending. The implication is that if he is not sorry for what he has done, he is more likely to do it again. This is why there is a need for systems and laws that can monitor the whereabouts of convicted sex offenders and restrict their access to children.

What we thought we knew hid a monster within.
He is every parent’s worst nightmare:
a strange and odd man

who has victimised children around the world.
But we didn’t know then, and couldn’t tell.
And it is this that makes us feel vulnerable.

The former star has three days to give police a permanent address – but they are believed to be aware of his current whereabouts.

Neither Glitter nor his solicitor would say where the 64-year-old convicted paedophile plans to live now he is reluctantly back in the UK.

He arrived home yesterday after a four-day tour of Asia, apparently trying to avoid returning to Britain.

Glitter had just been released from a Vietnamese prison after serving two years and nine months of a three year sentence for sex crimes involving two girls aged 10 and 11

He flew to Bangkok where he was due to board a flight to London, but he refused, saying he felt ill.

However, the Thai authorities would not allow him through passport control and he was eventually forced to fly on to Hong Kong.

Chinese authorities also refused him entry and he flew back to Bangkok, where Thai police and immigration officials insisted he return to Britain.

He arrived at Heathrow’s Terminal 3, where he remained while his solicitor David Corker went to court on his behalf.

Mr Corker appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates Court, west London, where he was told that Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, had three days in which to sign the sex offenders register.

Scotland Yard had successfully applied for an order requiring Gadd to register as a sex offender – although he has 21 days to appeal.

Once on the register, Glitter must inform police if he plans to travel abroad for more than three days – and breaching the rules can result in a prison sentence of up to five years.

That he generates such strong emotions is both a function of his familiarity to us and, paradoxically, his distance from us. As suggested, his familiarity reminds the public that abusers are often popular, trusted and liked: indistinguishable from other ordinary men (and women) in our lives. This is terrifying, and this is why the public prefers to think that abusers are extraordinary – like a glam rocker: flamboyant, excessive, bizarre and uncommon. But being bizarre did not lead to Glitter’s downfall (his collection of child porn was uncovered by chance by a computer repair man at PC World) and child sexual abuse is far from uncommon.

He was over the top, but not scary, not threatening. He’d been around for so long that we thought we knew him, we thought we were in on the joke. People had taken his songs into their homes and Gary Glitter into their hearts. So, when his crimes became public knowledge, his betrayal felt personal. His excess, once endearing, was now sinister. What we thought we knew hid a monster within. He is every parent’s worst nightmare: a strange and odd man who has victimised children around the world. But we didn’t know then, and couldn’t tell. And it is this that makes us feel vulnerable.

He is the bogeyman for our times because child sexual abuse is one of the public’s biggest fears. As the visible face of a largely hidden population, Glitter represents a target for all the anger and hurt that he and other (hidden) child sexual abusers invoke.

Shawn Harper – Repeat Sex Offender – Serial Child Molester – Treatment didn’t work

In 1992, he was convicted of two counts of molesting little boys in Burlington. Under a plea deal he spent just 4 months in prison and got a satisfactory release from probation in 2000 after he completed sex offender treatment.


Shawn Harper, 33, was back in the Burlington court Monday accused of sexual assaults on a young boy.

“We’re very, very concerned that if he’s allowed back on the streets. He’s gone under the radar for three years and he’s back in Vermont less than a month,” Chittenden Deputy Prosecutor Susan Hardin said.

Harper is no stranger to the courts and charges of molesting kids.

In 1992, he was convicted of two counts of molesting little boys in Burlington.

Under a plea deal he spent just 4 months in prison and got a satisfactory release from probation in 2000 after he completed sex offender treatment.

Under law, he was a registered sex offender required to update his address annually or within three days of moving.

But in 2005 he moved to New York and disappeared– until last week. That’s when Vermont police learned he moved back to Burlington a month ago and allegedly sexually assaulted a 7-year-old boy while visiting family on Park Street two years ago.

Police also learned that Harper is the target of child sex abuse investigations in Utah and Arizona.

The judge wondered why no one had been looking for him for failing to register as a sex offender for at least two years.

“Regardless of whether they’re here or not here you might look and say oh, he hasn’t registered for two years,” Judge Linda Levitt said.

“I agree and luckily we’re having more sweeps and locating more people that are not registering,” Hardin said.

“He went missing for lack of a better term where no one from at least the registry or state law enforcement here knew where he was residing,” said Detective Tyler Kinney, of the Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations.

Kinney says this case underscores a major problem with the sex offender registry– authorities are not required to check on the offender addresses to see if they actually live where they claim. So he started a sweep system last year for Chittenden County.

“Today we netted about 65 arrests and or warrants applied for. In some instances, I know some of those people have gone to other states,” Kinney said.

Harper pled innocent to the two sex assault charges. He is being held without bail pending a hearing next week.

Police agencies in at least four other Vermont communities are planning sweeps to ensure sex offenders are residing where they are supposed to. But when registered sex offenders move to other states those other states are supposed to keep track of them. And it doesn’t work very well– for example, California has about 120,000 registered offenders and 30,000 have completely disappeared.

It appears that all an offender has to do is move to another state to escape scrutiny. It’s because every state has different registry laws and there is no uniform method for states to share information and track offenders across state lines. But that is supposed to change next year when a new federal law goes into effect. Not only will state registries be integrated — but more information will be available directly to the public.
