— A Goldsboro man faces charges that he broke into a home and sexually assaulted a woman Wednesday, police said.

Freddie Antonio Tann, 34, of 708 Rudolph St., was charged with second-degree sexual offense, first-degree burglary and two counts of assault on a female.

Police characterized the incident as domestic and declined to release more details.

Tann was arrested Thursday and placed in the Wayne County jail without bond. A judge could grant him bond at his first court appearance on July 18.

Tann has a criminal record dating to 1993 and is on probation for 2010 convictions for five counts of driving with a revoked license, according to state Department of Correction records.

His 14 other convictions include armed robbery, assault on a female and felony drug offenses.

    To Reality Bites: that legislation will not free up violent dudes like this one. It's for non-violent only and will make more room for violent offenders like this guy. AND YOU KNOW IT !

    'The judge should not give him bond so that he will be back on the streets doing the same thing again to another innocent woman. Wake up judge and do the right thing. Put this man away for a long while. People should feel safe in their own home. 20 years should do it.'--wildcat

    @ hunter38, BEV has made changes, she has signed a bill that will let criminals stay at home with supervision instead of putting them in jail or prison!! so in return people are losing jobs, and streets are getting worse!!!! mmmmmm... i commit a crime and still stay home, this is sweet!!! GREAT JOB BEV!!!!

    Maybe we'll get lucky and one of his brothers will cap him.

    Vigilant justice. Stop relying on the no good "justice" system. What kind of system allows this kind of person to commit crimes and walk free?.

    It will continue until people realize that criminals are criminals, especially violent ones. There is no such thing as "rehabilitation." That is a made up word and ones that for some reason liberal judges/lawmakers believe in. Stiffer penalties are the only way to stop this madness. Unfortunatly we will probably never be tough enough on crime because there are too many people who have never been a victim (most would change their minds if they were) of a crime who want to help these people lead productive lives. Yeah right, to people like this productive means something a LOT different it does to the good citizens of this country.
