— A convicted sex offender faces fresh accusations that he had sex with two 15-year-old girls, Goldsboro police said Wednesday.

Police said a nearly three-month investigation substantiated allegations that Jeremy Thomas Patterson, 26, brought the girls to his residence at 807-B Prince Ave., gave them alcohol and had sex with them. Police said the girls were acquaintances of Patterson.

Patterson, of 116 Shady Nook Drive, was charged with statutory rape, statutory sex offense, indecent liberties with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was also served with warrants for failing to pay child support.

He was placed in the Wayne County jail under a $508,000 secured bond.

Patterson was convicted of taking indecent liberties with a minor in connection with an incident on Jan. 1, 2006, according to state Department of Correction records. He served a year in prison.

    He's a sexual predatory and need some serious jail time. The woman in Ohio got four years, maybe he'll get more if there is any justice.

    "He was also served with warrants for failing to pay child support."

    michaelclay, there's a whole lot of world out there that you must be unaware of. If we locked up all of these sinners (criminals, I guess, is the legal term) we wouldn't be able to feed them.

    Some of these cases would better be handled in civil court.

    Nature's laws overrule society's laws. This is not a one-way crime. Will the "victims" keep being allowed to run loose? How many more "sex offenders" will face charges before "victims" reach the "legal age"?

    Castrate him.

    That would not be the answer and what would it solved. He needs help but not your kind.

    At what point do we hold the parents of these girls accountable? The parents should have been aware of where these girls were and who they were hanging out with.

    tar97heel, you're right, we were all 15 once, and at 15 we were not thinking as an adult. Life was all fun and games. Now as for me, when I was 26 I was married with 3 kids and a house note and was not thinking about anything but taking care of my family. Now if this young man was not thinking as an adult at 26 then mabe he has some mental problems. Either way he needs to be locked away from the rest of society.

    What was these two 15 years doing hanging around him? Did their parents know this? Plus they should not have been drinking since they were underage. Little girls trying to be GROWN before their time. May they learn from this tragedy.
