U.S. marshals arrest man wanted in child molestation case

Posted October 23, 2009

— U.S. marshals have caught a Morrisville man who is a suspect in cases of child molestation and sexual assault, Durham police said.

Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Jimmy Edward Brown, 26, of Folsom Lane, in the 800 block of Lee Street Monday morning.

Brown had been wanted on two counts each of sexual offense with a child and taking indecent liberties with a minor. Those offenses involved two boys in 2008, police said.

He had been out on bond for a first-degree sexual assault charge stemming from an incident in 2006, police said.

According to state Department of Correction records, Brown was convicted of breaking-and-entering and larceny in Orange County in 2001.

    What's the hold-up?

    The Marshalls and the law have been trying to find him and he will be charged for past crimes, too.

    Has he not been to trial for the 2006 sexual offense? What's the hold-up?

    One can run and hide, but sooner or later the Marshalls will get you and then you will face the consequence.

    ANY crime against a child deserves the death penalty - the quicker the better. Not only do I want to make sure that they NEVER get out of prison but I don't want to support them for the rest of my life either. This creep does not deserve to take another breath.

    I say take off some parts that he is using to do these crimes see if that helps him out

    I agree why was he out on bond anyways?! There are just some offenses that no bond should be allowed. Primarily crimes against children!!!

    Lock them up and throw away the key.....just that simple!

    He will get a sentence, and then with good behavior credits, be out in a matter of months.

    Yeh let him go again judge - when will the courts, judges, lawyers learn!! These officials need to start taking responsibility for this type of action. They should be fined, put in jail or loses their positions. Take you pick but they need to be shook up.
