Eddy Barreras – Repeat Sex Offender – Child Predator

  • 06/19/2005 CRIMINAL ATTEMPT TO COMMIT RAPE
  • 04/07/2008 SOLICITATION OF A MINOR: CLASS B OR C


A registered sex offender has been charged with solicitation of child rape in connection with an incident involving two sisters last week.

Eddy Barreras, 29, is scheduled to make an initial court appearance today.

According to a police affidavit:

The sisters, ages 12 and 14, told their mother a man tried to get them to get into his car as they rode their bikes near Homer and Fairmont on Friday at 4:40 p.m.

Their mother got the license plate of the car when the man drove past their house.

Officers later stopped Barreras, who wears a GPS tracking device, in his 1999 Ford Crown Victoria in the Binghamton area.

Officers found a knife under the driver’s side floor mat, an unused condom on the passenger’s seat, and another condom in the glove box.

Barreras is also charged with solicitation of aggravated rape and driving with a suspended license.

He was sentenced to three years for attempted rape in August 2006 and was placed on lifetime supervision in June 2007, according to the Tennessee Department of Correction. He has previous convictions for burglary and vandalism.

K.J. Britt – Cuts of GPS and tries to murder woman


A man from Cocoa was charged Tuesday with attempted murder in connection with the attack on a woman in which deputies say he cut her throat.

K.J. Britt, 44, also is charged with kidnapping the woman, who was identified Tuesday as Courtney Carver, 23, of Cocoa.

According to deputies, Britt and Carver knew each other and got together about 6:20 a.m. Sunday. A dispute led to the beating, during which deputies say Britt knocked Carver unconscious and put her in his car truck.

In woods off Industry Road, Britt cut her throat and stabbed her, according to the report. He came back later with a blanket, then left again, deputies said.

Carver walked out of the woods on Monday morning and was taken to the hospital.

Britt was taken into custody on Monday evening, first on charges of violation of probation and removal, destruction of tampering with an electronic device. He is being held in Brevard County Detention Center on $100,000 bond.

Britt, a registered sex offender because of a prior sexual battery case, removed his monitoring device and threw it in trash in after leaving Carver in the woods, deputies said.

John Canadyan – Refusing GPS


A woman whose loved ones were killed by a sex offender said that she’s appalled another parolee has been allowed to live without a GPS bracelet for months.

Homeless sex offender John Canadyan has been shunning a court order to wear a location-monitoring device while living at a veteran’s shelter. A judge ordered Canadyan to find alternate accommodations or otherwise remedy the situation, but 89 days passed before Canadyan took any action.

Annette Presti, whose family members were killed by a sex offender who was freed pending trial, said she couldn’t believe courts had not ordered Canadyan back to jail.

“If they don’t bring them back after violations, what happens if they go and rape another child? If they go and murder another child? What happens then?” asked Presti.

The 9-year-old girl assaulted by Canadyan said that she is terrified the sexual offender is living freely without the bracelet.

“He may come over here and do it again to me,” the girl said at her home.

Canadyan is in violation of his probation agreement by not wearing the GPS device, and Presti insists the convicted criminal should be in jail as a result.

“Does she deserve that? She is a victim and she needs to come first — her needs — and not a level three sex offender.”

The man who killed Presti’s daughter and granddaughter had also violated his parole conditions weeks before the attacks.

“Our children are not safe with this type of a system,” Presti said. “It makes me angry and it makes me want to fight for a better place for our children to live in.”

Canadyan is due back in court next week. He is expected to provide a judge with the address of a new home or evidence that he is now wearing the bracelet.

Jimmy Duprease Craddock – Repeat Sex Offender – Bye Bye Baby Raper


A 46-year-old Wilmington sex offender is on his way back to prison for raping a child under his care.

A New Hanover County Superior Court judge on Tuesday sentenced Jimmy Duprease Craddock to almost 25 years in prison for raping and sexually abusing a girl from the time she was 12 until she turned 16.

In a mostly empty courtroom, he pleaded guilty to 39 counts of statutory rape, first-degree sex offense, first-degree rape of a child and first-degree rape.

“We allowed him to plea so our victim does not have to take the witness stand,” said Assistant District Attorney Connie Jordan.

In the 1980s, Craddock was convicted of second-degree rape, attempted rape and indecent liberties with a child, according to the N.C. Department of Correction. The convictions stemmed from sexual crimes against a relative of the latest victim, Jordan said.

The latest convictions came to light after the victim told one of her siblings, and Craddock was arrested in April 2008.

She eventually told investigators that at least two to three times a week, Craddock “would come into her bedroom and do what he always did,” Jordan said.

A DNA sample from a comforter where Craddock had forced the girl to have sex confirmed he was the perpetrator, Jordan said. Investigators searched Craddock’s house and found pornography on his computer and images of the girl’s friends partially clothed.

In the courtroom, the first victim appeared in court, but did not speak at his sentencing.

In prison, Craddock will be classified as a recidivist, Resident Superior Court Judge Phyllis Gorham said.

Craddock was not on the state’s sex offender list for his first crimes because the law didn’t take effect until the mid 1990s, Jordan said.

That won’t happen again.

Craddock will be monitored with an ankle bracelet when he is released from prison and he will have to register as a sex offender.

Eric Roper – Repeat Sex Offender – The Benefits of GPS Monitoring

A registered sexual predator was arrested Friday after he invited a 12-year-old girl into his car and exposed himself to her, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said.

Eric Roper, 28, drove near the girl on Long Street in Lakeland as she was walking to school and asked if she wanted a ride, officials said. The girl refused and threatened to call police, and Roper then stepped from the car and exposed himself, police said.

The girl ran to a nearby house, where the residents called for help. PCSO detectives said they confirmed Roper’s location during the incident through a GPS device he is required to wear.

Roper is listed as a transient with no known address. He was arrested and charged with attempted kidnapping and lewd exhibition.

Marcus Golston – Repeat Sex Offender – Failed to Register then raped an 8 year old

A Leland man pleaded guilty Wednesday in Brunswick County Superior Court to raping an 8-year-old-girl and failing to register as a sex offender.

Marcus Golston, who is in his late 30s, pleaded guilty to second-degree rape and was sentenced to nine and a half to 12 years in prison, Assistant District Attorney Meredith Everhart said.

Golston also pleaded guilty to failure to register as a sex offender.

He will now be required to register as a sex offender and be subject to GPS satellite monitoring for the rest of his life, Everhart said.

The incident with the child occurred in Leland from January to March in 2007.

This was not Golston’s first sex offense.

He was dishonorably discharged from the military for sex offense with a girl under the age of 16 in 1996, Everhart said.

He served seven years in a military prison for that charge before moving to New Hanover County then to Brunswick County, where he failed to register as a sex offender.

“He was never on our grid,” Everhart said, noting Golston lived in the area for four or five years without anyone knowing he needed to be registered as a sex offender.

Everhart said the registration allows law enforcement to monitor sex offenders.

“We can make sure that they are not in a position to be around young children,” she said.

Part of the requirement for registered sex offender is that they are not allowed to have anyone under the age of 18 in their home.

The incident with the 8-year-old occurred at Golston’s residence.

“Maybe it could have prevented her from being there in the first place,” Everhart said
