— A convicted sex offender was arrested Tuesday after Raleigh police found that he was caring for an 8-year-old boy.

Victor Jermaine Kornegay, 21, of 3361 Wills Grove Lane, is prohibited from providing child care as a condition of his 2009 conviction for indecent exposure.

According to the warrant for his arrest, Kornegay was being held at Wake County jail on $52,000 bond on charges of sex offender employment violation, assault on a child under the age of 12 and carrying a concealed weapon.

    Another one that will spend the majority of his life in and out of prison.

    "He is apparently too mentally disadvantaged to know what "no contact with children" means."

    Perhaps, but you'd think the kid's parents would be brighter.

    Why would someone have left a kid with him without checking this anyway???

    Is it that hard to do? Or does it cost money to do it?

    Dunno.

    He is apparently too mentally disadvantaged to know what "no contact with children" means. Lock him up and hope for a quick natural death to save all the citizens of NC more money!

    Something has to be done, because kids should not have to be put in positions of being accessible to sex offenders. These babies/children don't stand a chance. Parents, start being more responsible; go that extra mile of checking on your kids and who they are with, instead of just being glad they are out of your "hair". Yes, I will readily report anything out of the ordinary that reek suspicion/questionable behavior.

    HOW IS THE PUBLIC PEOPLE TO KNOW WHO THE SEX OFFENDER IS WHEN THERE IS NOTHING SHOWING A NAME AND A PICTURE. MANY PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE EXCESS TO A COMPUTER OR KNOW HOW TO USE A COMPUTER.

    The state should put up poster with pictures so the people will know exactly who the child predators is. Maybe that will help.

    Hello, there have been reported cases of child molestation at these centers. Check the person (s) or centers out thoroughly before allowing your child to attend there or be attended by a person.

    Who reported him and why did the mother not know and allow him to baby-sit the child? If she did not know, then ok.
