Sex Offender James Holland Jailed After MySpace Use



A North Carolina man who last year was convicted of molesting a 6-year-old child has turned himself into authorities on Wednesday following an investigation into a profile he created on MySpace.

James William Holland Jr, 32, of Asheville, was apprehend by authorities after being tipped off from someone that he had been actively using a MySpace account as well as a profile over on Facebook.

Something a convicted sex offender should never do...

A detective familiar with the case was quoted in the Asheville Citizen-Times saying:
"Anytime that you have convicted sex offenders with access to a group of people through social networking sites, they can pretend to be somebody they’re not, and that could actually lead to an encounter with a youth."

The now divorced (see above MySpace) ex-bouncer, previously employed at some hick club called Midnight Rodeo, currently remains behind bars without bond.
