Judge: Former Raleigh restaurant manager must register as a sex offeder
Jordan Hester, former beverage manager of Brewery Bhavana, will have to register as a sex offender. He pleaded guilty to secret peeping, and numerous women accuse him of inappropriate sexual conduct.
with respect to requests that he required to register as a sex offender. The court has considered the evidence offered the statements offer and the I will tell you the two things that have given me the greatest concern, or the fact that he has when it appears one of the primary reasons for the behavior for which he pled guilty, dealt with his low self esteem and self worth. While he has been in counseling for three years, he is barely scratched the surface. In addressing that issue, the court is not confident that in another five years that will be addressed or what will happen after the five years is lapses. More importantly, when his own expert tells me that she would not want to be supervised by him, that he should not supervise women, I'm being told that he should not supervised 51.9% of the workforce in this state. The only reason I can conclude that that was recommended was because his own expert felt that he was a danger T to say you cannot supervise women and she wouldn't want to be supervised by ham means that she would not trust him to be in a power of authority over him over her and that directly goes back to his own experts. Reasons why she believed he committed the offenses was because he wanted to feel like he had control. For those reasons and all the evidence that was offered, the court finds that he is a danger to the public is going to require him to register on the sex offender registry for a period of 30 years. He can petition the court in 10 years, uh, to be removed from that registry. All cost of the action will be taxed against him. Given the fact that he has a child. To the extent that he is in successful compliance with the terms of his probation, I'm gonna remit probation, supervision fees anything further from the state or the defense. For the record, I would just note are objection to the findings and the ruling with regard to the sex offender registry. Your objection way would also ask specifically did subject any court orders I'm not preventing. I'm not preventing him from having any contact with his own Children. And I'm not preventing him. I forget what the sex offender registry requirements are with respect to Children. I think I have to specifically restrict is have to find that there was a victim child, which were There are no restrictions on him with respect to being in the presence of miners. Because that's not the nature of this event. Thank you. All right, this court were being recess until 2 p.m. And which time judge or do you have something else? I didn't know you were gonna be into him. So as long as you know I'm not here, Judge Roadway is gonna be here. Alright, Alright. We'll be in recess until to the bigger court.
