— Cumberland County authorities have arrested a New Jersey woman who had not registered as a sex offender in North Carolina, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office said Friday.

Aquinna Geneva Spinks, 25, was convicted of a sexual offense involving a 9-year-old in New Jersey in 2003, said spokeswoman Debbie Tanna said. She said Spinks moved to Guilford County but did not register as a sex offender, and authorities issued a warrant for her arrest.

In May, Spinks moved to a residence at 1049 Rim Road in Fayetteville, close to a day care, and again didn't alert authorities to her address, Tanna said.

Spinks was charged with failure to register as a convicted sex offender and residing within 1,000 feet of a day care.

She was placed in the Cumberland County jail under a $40,000 secured bond. Her first court appearance was set for Monday.

    blahblahblah: I am in no way siding with this woman. But, the registered sex offender program isn't all it's cracked up to be. I know a 17 who had sexual relations with his willing 14 year old girlfriend. When her parents found out she was no longer "innocent" they pressed charges against the boy. He was found guilty (don't remember the exact charge) and now has to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Doesn't seem very fair.

    It happens a lot like that I think that the law on that matter is to broad and should be rewritten.

    I saw sex offender on the title of the article, then saw her picture and immediately thought there was a mistake. That was weird. Just stereotyped sex offenders as males only. WOW. One big Ahh Hah moment for me.

    She was 17 when you molested a 9 year old boy. I always thought that women went for the older man. WOW
