North Dakota Sex Pervert Caught In Idaho

A man from my home state has been arrested in Idaho.

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) – An 8-year-old girl who disappeared with her brother six weeks ago from a home where family members were bludgeoned to death was spotted early Saturday with a registered sex offender at a Denny’s restaurant, officials said.

The girl’s 9-year-old brother, Dylan, had not been found, Kootenai County Sheriff’s Capt. Ben Wolfinger said. He said the girl was spotted in her hometown by a waitress who apparently recognized her from photographs displayed in the media.

Joseph Edward Duncan III, of from Fargo, N.D., was arrested without incident and charged with kidnapping, Wolfinger said. Duncan was being held without bond.

They’re still looking for the little boy.

Given this from the same article there is absolutely no reason why Duncan should have been out and capable of committing these crimes.

Duncan had an outstanding warrant for failing to register as a sex offender and had a history of rape, Wolfinger said. He was facing charges of molesting a 6-year-old boy in Minnesota last year but was released on bail in April.

You can see Mr. Duncan’s listing on the Cass County sex offender’s registry (Fargo, ND) here. Not a lot of details, just a mugshot and an address.

I honestly can’t understand why we let high-risk perverts like Duncan go free when we’re convicting people like this guy for “sex” crimes that don’t even involve sex.

This is the second high-risk sex offender who has been released back into the North Dakota/Minnesota area only to commit crimes even worse than what they’d already been convicted for. Isn’t it high time we started taking some of these criminals seriously? Why are we consistently letting these sex perverts out of jail when all parties involved are aware of the fact that there is a very high chance they will repeat their crimes?

As I’ve said before, I wouldn’t mind seeing a few more petty thieves and mild drug abusers back on the streets if it meant we could keep more people like Duncan and Alphonso Rodriguez locked up.

Update:

As per Jo in the comments, this would appear to be Mr. Duncan’s blog.

The posts at that blog would tend to support it as several of the details (visits from local law enforcement, accusations of molesting a child, etc.) match up with what we’ve seen reported in the press.

That last entry is absolutely chilling.
