Convicted sex offender out on work release from the Jackson County Jail.

Derrick is 5'8" with short brown hair, stocky build. Photographs of him appear on his Yahoo Personals page that is still public on the site.

Derrick was charged and plead guilty to molesting a 6 year old boy in the summer of 2006 and also plead guilty to the charge of taking propery under false pretenses (both can be verified through the Jackson County Clerk of Court). In addition to numerious other charges and convictions in his past.

Be warned, at this time it is not known where Derrick may be working. His previous employment has been in computer software and computer repair, so most likely he is working in that field again somewhere in Sylva or Cullowhee. DO NOT let him near your computer (as the 2nd conviction mentioned above comes from being hired to repair a computer and neither returning the computer or the money paid in advance for repair) and he also has a serious pornography addiction.

When Derrick tried to date women he tends to specifically find women with small children.

Stay awy from this man and if you seek repair of a computer, find out if the business employs this sicko and take your computer elsewhere! Know this mans face and if you see him, stay away!

This is his Yahoo Personals profile with pictures!

Lies. Derrick's ex girlfriend wrongly accused him in an attempt to extort money from him. Learn the facts before believing this rubbish.

Hey, check YOUR facts. No, he didn't plead guilty to anything. He entered an "alford plea" which is NOT an admission of guilt.

The man is innocent. Period.

I'm Derricks brother, you guys should get your facts straight. I met the nutcase that accused him of the molestation, nowadays anyone can accuse anybody of molesting a child and they will immediately get locked up. Of course he took the plea, lets see.... 6 months in jail vs going agains't a jury and possibly getting 40+ years. I've known derrick my entire life and i know he is innocent.

I know Derrick, he is a sick bastard who can't keep his butt out of jail for anything.

Brandon, I would expect you to defend your family but get a clue man, your entire family has criminal records a mile long (yea anyone can go online and see the arrest and conviction records of both Derrick and Keith. Yea by they way just how many times have they both been charged and convicted of molestation, assault, child abuse, drunk driving, ect. It is all there in black and white buddy!)

Harry where exactly is the "facts" that she was trying to extort money? Number one she was pretty well off in her own right with her own money, meanwhile she is trying to get money out of a guy with no job (remember he got fired from his computer repair job for illegally downloading software?) and no car? Seriously there Harry, how much sense does that make to any rational thinker? Oh that's right, it doesn't.

Just like always Derrick is spreading lies to anyone who will listen before they figure out that it is all crap.

By the way anyone with half a brain would never plead guilty to something that either they or their attorney know they can prove innocent to. If all the crap Derrick is trying to claim is the truth (like this extortion crap) then why would his attorney allow him to plead? Why would they not get evidence of it and charge her? Why would they not go forth with a trial and bring it out? Oh that's right, because it is all BULL!

Harry just exactly how do you figure that she is going to extort money from someone who doesn't have a dime to his name? From what I heard this woman had just inherited over $200,000 from her father's estate & was working full time out at WCU, so what the heck was she going to do with Derrick's pennies? That creep was living in dump with no car what the heck did he have that she would want? His rusty pot and pans or his busted radio controled helicopter toy?

If you seriously believe this idiots stories (along with his poor me stories of how all his convictions over the years have been because he is being set up and framed by the Jackson County Sheriffs Department, like they have nothing better to do) then I sincerly hope you at the very least keep your kids away from him, because my gut tells me that the little boy he molested is not the first kid he has messed with, and I doubt he will be the last!

Oh by the way, both Derrick and Keith are both facing more criminal charges in Jackson and Swain county in the upcoming weeks. Real Boy Scouts those 2 are!

So, you want facts, here's the facts: when Derrick was dating the woman who made the accusations, she hadn't inherited anything at that time. She didn't receivd that money until well after this crap started. Secondly, Derrick was about to receive an insurance settlement from a motorcycle accident, and she knew this. From the moment she got wind of this, she started asking for money. She was on H.U.D., and was barely keeping her head above water.

Next, Derrick didn't get fired from the computer place. He was working as a subcontractor for the owner, whom I know, and Derrick actually quit because the owner was using the same copy of Windows XP on multiple computers. When Microsoft actually called to ask some questions, Derrick decided it was better to get out of a potentially troublesome situation.

And someone asked why would anyone take a plea deal that was innocent? It happens on a daily basis. Unfortunately juries will tend to side with an accuser, especially a women. Secondly, how many of you, when looking down the barrel of a gun so to speak, wouldn't have done the same. You don't know, because you haven't been in the situation. And Derrick only accepted a plea deal because it was an alford plea, which is NOT an admission of guilt.

Here's some more facts; the night that the incident supposedly occured, not only do Derrick's phone records show that he was texting or talking the entire time, but also, Derrick was so uncomfortable with the situation that he called his mother, and she came over and stayed until Rhonda arrived.

When interviewed, this kid claimed thay Derrick has no tattoos. Hmmmmm, interesting, as Derrick is covered with tattoos. The biggest one covering half of his back.

Now, I'll admit, Derrick is no angel. So what? Being a troublesome rebel does NOT make a person a child molester. And if you people had REALLY checked your facts, you would find out that he once got arrested for beating up a girlfriend's ex-husband. Why? because the daughter claimed that the ex-husband molested her, so Derrick damn near killed him.

You people are ignorant and shameful, and you're hiding behind the anonymity of the internet conducting your own virtual e-lynching. Why don't you mind your own business and let the man try to put his life back together? He's a Christian now, and as far as God's concerned, the slate is clean. "Judge not, lest ye be judged yourselves".

Wow Patrick, did you actually know the personal details of the mom's life? She was not on HUD, she was renting a house at the time, but was paying for it with her own money from her job. Plus HUD won't pay for a home when someone has that much money in the bank!

Again Derrick's story doesn't add up, and his story kept changing. First the story was that he had a "friend" over the entire time (but would never tell the detective the name of this supposed "friend"), then he claimed it was his sister-in-law who was there, now the story is it was his mother! Again common sense would say if he had a witness who could verify his innocence, then why did his attorney allow him to plead guilty? If he had a witness to prove his innocence, then why did the DA press charges on him?

You are obvioulsy just listening to his pathetic lies. The fact is that the police and the DA's office have to have FACTS and PROOF before they can even begin to arrest and charge someone with a crime. They had all of that primarly based on evidence that they collect. The biggest piece of evidence was the forensic interview with the victim. You need to go back and see what this 6 year old child told them in a closed videotaped interview. In fact the child DID say he saw the tattoos that he would have only seen and remembered if Derrick was naked!

I feel really sorry for you if you continue to believe Derricks lies. I'll bet he also didn't tell you the truth about the girl he was dating that he beat up when she tried to leave him. Just remember this, he has continued to get into trouble with the law? He is a "Christian" and trying to rebuild his life? Well then I hope he rememberes that when he is sitting in court again in a few days facing even more criminal charges!

Carrie, it's no secret that you are Rhonda's friend, and it's painfully obvious that you are only seeing things the way she is presenting them to you. I HAVE seen the entire case file, and it is a FACT that this kid claimed that Derrick had NO tattoos. Also, Derrick never once claimed that there was anyone with him other than his mother, because DERRICK NEVER MADE A STATEMENT TO ANY DETECTIVES. Your so-called lies are nothing more than that, lies. Rhonda WAS on HUD while her AND Derrick dated, and she didn't receive her inheritance until long after she made her accusations. I have seen the interview of the kid, and it is also interesting to note that it was actually the second interview because the first one conveniently came up missing. The interview is evidence to me that the whole thing was concocted and memorized. And to answer the question, again, why would he plead to something if he was innocent? I would have done the same thing. Statistics prove that over 80% of juries will side with a woman. It's also interesting to note that Derrick PASSED 3 separate lie detectors. Rhonda refused to take one. Wonder why? Derrick has also never been charged with assaulting an ex-girlfriend. You are one stupid and ignorant person Carrie, and it's too bad Rhonda has you brainwashed. On a final note Derrick isn't facing any new criminal charges. He's been working hard to avoid trouble and confrontation, and I have personally watched his growth and strength as he is trying to put the past to rest. Maybe you should too.

He is going to court for driving without a license! Not a big deal but still against the law! Check the Jackson county court dockets.

Patrick, I HIGHLY suggest before you publically state anything further, you go down to the courthouse and speak to the DA and to Detective Buchanan about the facts, because you obviously have concocted a heck of a story in your head!

First of all the 1st tape of the child's interview was not "lost", the tape was discovered to be damaged and that was the only reason for the 2nd interview. As much as you would like to believe that a 6 year old child can be manupulated, here is a fact. This is the typical whining of a sick twisted mind who got caught and wants to put the blame elsewhere. Derrick got caught and that was the best story he could come up with.

Second, the mom knew nothing of this supposed "settlement" and again she had her own money in the bank, had a job making her own money so what would she have wanted with his even if she knew? Again this is just a blind attempt to try to shift the focus off of the overwhelming evidence against Derrick.

As for the Lie Detector tests, if he passed all of them, then why was he charged? And this story of her refusing to take one, that is funny! Again it was not her saying what happened, it was a 6 year old boy! She was NEVER asked to take one (so it would make it pretty hard to refuse something she was never asked to do!) but lets just play out that little fantasy of yours. If the detective or the DA wanted her to take a lie detector test and she refused, there is this little thing called a court order that would have solved that problem.

I find it funny that you claim he never made a statement to the detectives, kinda hard to be arrested and charged without answering a detectives questions. And if he was so damn innocent don't you think he would have been spilling his guts to the detective about how she was setting him up, this was all a ploy on her part to get his supposed "settlement"?

None of your claims add up to anything halfway believeable, but if you want to keep coming on here and weave a few more brainless fairytales, be my guest!

You really do show how clueless you are when you say that Derrick is not facing any new charges, when the court dockets show the exact opposite. If you can't even see that I highly doubt you have reviewed any of the files or evidence in the case as you claim you have.

If fact I'd be willing to bet that this is YOU DERRICK on here shooting off your lies. Hmm are you not supposed to be online as part of your probation? Yea remember you were also charged and convicted of stealing a customers computer and refusing to return her money for the repairs to the computer? Or was this some other woman who made up lies and got you in trouble, like the women in Sylva have nothing better to do then to get the law after you so they can get your "money".

Maybe you should just come out of the closet and bat for the other team, everyone already suspects it anyway.

And once again, you continue to prove that you know nothing of the facts surrounding the case. If the DA's case was so overwhelmingly solid, he would have never offered Derrick a plea deal. Most similar cases usually result in several year sentences, however, the DA knew that there was NO physical evidence, and that the entire situation was circumstantial at best. No DA with a solid case in his right mind would settle.

Secondly, regarding the computer incident, what really happened was that Derrick's customer paid for a screen that he ordered for her. After disassembling the entire computer his client then changed her mind because her mother was going to buy her a new one. She then asked Derrick to refund her money, and reassemble the computer. Since he had spent 4 hours on her computer, at a rate of $65 per hour, she then owed him $260 in labor. He DID return her computer, however Derrick refused to refund her money ($219) because she owed him more than what she initially gave him. Derrick's girfriend at the time witnessed the entire event and made a written, notarized statement to that effect.

As a close family friend of Derrick's you can bet your ass that I will continue to defend him. I know the truth, and many more people know the truth. And, by the way moron, traffic court isn't "criminal charges". That alone is a testament to your stupidity.

You really need to just drop it already. Almost everything out of your mouth is a lie, and it's obvious. Maybe you and I could meet in public somewhere, and I'll be happy to show you every piece of documentation that Derrick has provided to me. Maybe then you'll realize what an ignorant bitch you're being.

I dont even know this guy,so out of curiosity I looked up his record on NC DOC. I believe it tells all anyone needs to know about him - and its not good! Anyone supporting him must be stupid or blind or both.

I believe if he did this he should be executed. There needs to be harsher punishment then there is for all criminals. That sure would cut down on crime. If they steal, cut off their hand and so on.

Yes, he does appear to have quite a record! Doesn't look to me that he is a saint.

And??? Being a troublemaker DOES NOT make a person a pervert. Nobody has said the guy is perfect. If you look at his record closely, you'll see that almost all of his convictions happened in 1998. After that, he pretty much stayed out of trouble for ten years. Everyone that knows him knows he's a good person with a good heart, he just hangs out with all the wrong people, and inevitably ends up doing stupid stuff. But this time, he was the unfortunate victim of a twisted bitch's scheme to try to extort his insurance money from him. Part of the evidence that I saw was his old cell phone, and there is a text from the woman that says "for 10k this will all go away". Inadmissable as evidence because it couldn't be proven it came from her.

Wow i cant believe all these people are taking up for this insane man. Once I found out that he had me believing a bunch of lies I tried to leave him. He was a drunk the whole time we were together and he would get really mean whenever he was drunk. Once i decided to leave him he wasnt going to have it. He threw knives at me and tried to choke me. Im glad he is finally having to pay for all of the horrible things he has done to people. and anyone who takes up for him is sick themselves.

Dumbass Patrick, those are criminal charges from what I see on the NCDOC website!

Also Derrick moved away from NC in 1998, then he started racking up more charges as soon as he moved back to NC.

Your a dumbass Patrick, better watch your back or else Derrick will be sticking it up your backdoor soon! Ha unless you are taking it willingly because yes, Derrick is highly suspected to be a fairy boy.
well then
