Lawman: Local sex offender tripped up by registration

July 24, 2013


For a second time in four days last week, a convicted sex offender residing in Hood County was put behind bars for failing to comply with requirements as a sex offender when registering.

Casey Noel Pond, 33, of the 100 block of Lottie Court, was arrested on a felony warrant at about 12:30 p.m. on Friday by a Hood County Sheriff’s Office deputy.

A 64-year-old Hood County man turned himself in on a similar felony warrant on July 16.

Lieutenant Johnny Rose said such arrests are a matter of being “irresponsible” because of the fact that convicted sex offenders “know what is expected of them when they first meet with the sex offender officer.”

Pond remained in the Hood County Jail as of press time. His bond was set at $20,000.
