Sex offender on Facebook arrested

Published On: Jun 05 2013 04:24:41 PM CDT

Carteret County deputies have arrested a registered sex offender accused of using Facebook.

Christopher Matthew Jolin, 31, was arrested by deputies at his home in Newport for accessing and utilizing a social networking site as a registered sex offender. The use of social media violates sex offender registry conditions.

Jolin was registered as an offender in 2005 after being convicted of indecent liberties with a 14-year-old female. He has been placed in the Carteret County Jail under a $15,000 bond.
