Sex offender, wife face charges

Posted March 5, 2010

— A registered sex offender in Moore County has been charged with molesting a 5-year-old, and his wife has been charged with caring for children in the home when he was present, authorities said Friday.

Dallas Junior Mofield, 69, of 36141 U.S. Highway 1 in Aberdeen, was charged Sunday with second-degree sexual offense, sexual offense with a child, indecent liberties with a child, sexual battery and childcare in the home of a sex offender. He was being held Friday in the Moore County jail under a $5 million secured bond.

On Thursday, Virginia Mofield, 61, of the same address, was charged with babysitting in the home of a sex offender. She was given a $100,000 unsecured bond.

    Why do some get higher bonds than others?That's an easy one.That's up to the judge.Some judges are ok,some are useless.I've actually heard of cases of pedophiles getting off on probation,and never get any time until some poor kid winds up dead.The problems of our justice system usually comes from judges.

    I'd rather they let out murderers and keep these guys in prisons, I can at least protect myself against the murderer little children have no hope against adults. I read stories like this and I cringe.

    Thanks for the info "The10mmcure". I would also like to know how one person gets a $5 million bond for doing unspeakable things to a child and someone else doing something similar may only get a $250,000 bond.

    Seems to me that she should have been charged as an accessory, which means the same potential penalty.

    Canes Girl Forever ,The bond system basically works like this.If you bond someone out,whether you sign over property or cash ,you're responsible for them showing up for court.In other words you have just become a Bondsman,so if you have to tase,hogtie and throw them in the back of a truck,you must make sure they show up.The legalities of all that vary from state to state,but to my understanding it works just like that in most states.If you can't do it,and have the money,you hire a Bounty Hunter.

    There i sno rehabilitating a sex offender. My plan: Offer convicted child molesters the option of chemical castration and lifetime confinement to the home or life in sex offender only prison. THen stop locking up marijuana offenders, maybe even legalize it andtax the hell out of it to pay for housing andfeeding all the perverts. Problme solved !

    Could someone please explain the bond system?

  • ImtheBadGuy Mar 5, 2010

    Lock them up forever,yeah works on only one level though.Then we have to feed him forever.People like this,if in fact he is guilty,don't know yet,are incurable.They will never be rehabilitated.It's for stories like this I have such a screen name.
