READ MORE:
 

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Brunswick County man is in the Harnett County Jail charged with sex crimes against a child.

William Rivenbark, 32, of Winnabow, is in custody under $200,000 bond. An incident report says Rivenbark is charged with sexual offense with a child, first degree sex offense and indecent liberties with a child.

Investigators say the crime happened in April or May of last year at the home of the victim in Cameron. They say Rivenbark is a family friend of the victim.

Wednesday night court records showed Rivenbark also had a pending felony charge for indecent liberties with a child with a court date earlier this week in Brunswick County. A Brunswick County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman says Rivenbark was in the Brunswick County Jail briefly before being moved to Harnett County to face the charges there.

The Department of Corrections website shows Rivenbark was sentenced to probation in 2004 for assault on a child.

He should never be allowed

He should never be allowed around another child.

He's done

"Rivenbark was sentenced to probation in 2004 for assault on a child."
That's 1.

"Court records show Rivenbark also has a pending felony charge for indecent liberties with a child in Brunswick County."
That's 2.

Now he is in the Harnett County Jail charged with sexual offense with a child.
That's 3.

This guy should never see daylight again if he's convicted.

When will the system realize these guys don't quit, or change their actions.

Hopefully Thom Goolsby should take a look at this type of offender and write some new laws especially for them.

Agreed

This man is a sicko...

Pedophiles

Pedophiles cannot stop themselves, it is a crime with an extremely high recidivism rate. After a second offense, they should be removed permanently from society in order to protect the most vulnerable - children.
