Sex Offender strikes again

A sex offender in Des Moines who was already wanted by the police was located and arrested over the weekend. Sadly, he was able to sexually abuse two more young victims before being caught.

James Conway skipped out from the hotel he had used as his address when he registered with the sex offender registry. When police stopped by to validate his address, they found that he was gone. A warrant for his arrest was issued.

A call to police over the weekend lead them to the sicko, who had been babysitting two young boys at the time of the sexual assault. The two boys where friends, Conway had been staying in the home of the mother of one of the boys. She had left earlier in the night to run errands.

Conway has a prior conviction for lascivious acts with a child under 14, from 2000. The new charges are fro second degree sex abuse. He is being held on $200,000 bail.

At this point one has to wonder how he was able to avoid capture since Sept., why he was living in a home with a child in it- and how many more victims he would have had if it had not been for the two boys coming forward when they did.

This is not a man that should be out on the streets, preying upon children at his will.
