HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - One of Horry County's Most Wanted, a man who failed to register as a sex offender in Horry County, has been arrested by the US Marshals Task Force.
Nickolas Megeil Brown, 25, was convicted of a lewd act with a minor child in April of 2009. Authorities say in June of 2013 he failed to register as a sex offender. He was arrested by the US Marshals Task Force on Monday, Sept. 23 and booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center, according to the Horry County Sheriff's Office.
At a bond hearing Monday afternoon, he was given a $5,000 cash bond. This violation could send Brown to jail for 366 days, or he could be forced to pay a fine.
The Horry County Sheriff's Office uses the online 'Offender Watch" program to track registered offenders, but when they fail to register, deputies have to track them down.
Forty-five percent of sexual assault victims are under the age of 12, and more than half of rapes and assaults occur within a mile of the victim's home, according to the justice department. That's why it's so important the county keeps track of them.
"There are some convictions that require registration every 90 days and some require it every six months," says Sgt. Lori Avant.
Rodney Hemingway, 35, is also wanted for a registry violation. Deputies checked the Mill Swamp Road address in Longs he had on file and found he wasn't living there anymore.
"By statute offenders have three business days to make notification to the sheriff's office in person or by writing of their move or any other data change they have," says Avant.
In the meantime, you can track who's in your neighborhood. The online 'Offender Watch' makes it easy. After you type in your address it provides names of sex offenders in the area, along with their pictures, levels of offenses and locations. The sheriff's office is encouraging the community to get involved.
"It's a wonderful program that allows us to form a partnership with the community," says Avant. "There's a lot more eyes in the community than law enforcement has."
