Hopkins County sex offender arrested again

After serving three years for sexually abusing a child, a Madisonville man is facing another stretch in prison.

Madisonville Police arrested 44-year-old Jerry Emerson at his residence on East Noel Avenue Thursday afternoon.

Officials say he is on the sex offender registry because he pled guilty to sexually abusing a ten-year-old in 2006.   Emerson is not allowed to be in contact with any minors, or be on any web sites where he could come in contact with minors.

After a five-month investigation, Madisonville Police discovered that Emerson had two unregistered e-mail addresses and a Facebook page.

Emerson was arrested on two counts of providing misleading information to the sex offender registry, a class D felony, and one county of sex offender social network use.
