Hmm, that's a pretty substantial allegation to be making. I hope you have some proof to back that up.

It's True and he should be sitting in jail right now! But he got off easy with a FELONY Guilty Plea. Since you want some proof, you are DEPUTY Dave and Im sure you can look it up fairly easy yourself.

Yes, I did try to look him up and couldn't find his name in the L.A. County system. So, once again, do you have any proof or do you hold a personal vendetta against this individual?

Once again, Downey is in Los Angeles County. It is NOT in Orange County. DUH!!!

I don't give a rat's ass where he caught a friggin' fish. What the hell does that have to do with where he pled guilty to sex with a minor?

I think the idea is that he can be looked up through any counties system (LA, OC, Etc.. Should not be hard with that booking number.

No one has ever provided a booking number. I'm not sure what you're talking about. I've already tried to look him up in the LA County system - where the original poster CLAIMED he had pled guilty and found NOTHING.

I think if you had read the previous posts you would have known that.

Doesn't seem to be coming up for me. I can't find anything L.A. or O.C. and there are only 10 convicted sex offenders in the state with the last name Compton and none of them are this guy.

There is a record of a Chad Micahel Compton out of Ventura that got popped for PC242 - which is battery. Case number 2006000665 which means it's a 2006 case.

Maybe he's not a convicted sex offender. The post that started this forum states that he pled guilty to having sex with a minor. That doesn't make him a convicted sex offender. Not yet, anyway.

Wow, I didn't think I'd atually have to explain this...

Pleading GUILTY means you are GUILTY - whether you admit your guilt or are convicted by jury - you are still GUILTY! If you are GUILTY of having sex with a minor then you are most definitely a SEXUAL OFFENDER and therefore would have to register yourself as such with local law enforecement any time you move for the rest of your life.

You seem to be an arrogant, hot-headed person who is not interested in considering other people's thoughts or suggestions.

We do not need you to explain anything.

Just because he pled guilty does not mean he is already a registered sex offender. I suggested this as a possibility to explain why people weren't able to find information on him.

You may think you know it all, but you do not.

You have a lot to learn! Not all sex crimes require you to register as a sex offender.

Exactly! Thank you for helping.

And I hope your "You have a lot to learn" comment is referring to "Downey is LA County."

I don't know why you're trying to jump down MY throat! I've been trying to find out more information about this guy and am trying to determine if these charges are real. Before people make allegations as strong as these, one should maybe determine the allegations are true, right?

If this guy did what he's been accused of doing by the initial poster on this thread, then I want to know about it. But if this guy didn't do anything and the original poster has a personal vendetta against him then this should be immediately dropped and I want no part of it. And for this I'm called arrogant and hot-headed. Sheesh.

He was accused of unlawful sex with a minor and another party claimed he got off easy with felony guilty plea. All of the information provided indicates this is a registerable offense. THAT was the point I was trying to make. There's no need to try to attack me.

All I'm trying to do is get to the bottom of this - to learn the facts surrounding his purported guilty plea. The only thing I found on this guy was as battery charge from 2006 out of Ventura County.
