This individual is not the only sex-offender who has slipped through the cracks in Mountain Home. There is at least one more that the community is unaware of

Idaho in general has some very lax enforcement of the offender laws. It's one of the few state's I've known where a father can offend against his step children, but still get custody.
All that an offender must do to stay "compliant" is to live in one place long enough to register, and move again. They don't check for over a year.
It's a sad statement. Why have laws if they're not going to be enforced?

There are many sex offenders never registered because the laws were so lacked back in the 50. 60 etc. many moved. I know one who turned himself in and the police did not believe him let him go, and today he says they were saying he did nothing wrong!!! Said his records were sealed in the State of California.
