The four were arrested Wednesday (April 13) as part of a surprise inspection of 34 sex offenders and sexual predators living at the Butterfly Lodge Motel, according to Pinellas Park police.
PINELLAS PARK – Four men convicted of sex offenses were charged Wednesday (April 13) with parole violations, according to Pinellas Park police.
Gary Wilson,, 29, was accused of being in possession of pornography. Wilson had been on parole from charges of grand theft and lewd and lascivious conduct, police said. Jason Cord Allen, 36, was also accused of being in possession of pornography. Allen was on probation from a charge of lewd and lascivious conduct.
Charles William Burnsed, 53, was accused of having a cell phone with internet access. Burnsed had been on probation on a charge of sexual battery on a victim under 12. Also accused of having a cell phone with internet access was James Leroy LeHerissier, 57, who was on probation from charges of child abuse injury/neglect, possession of cocaine and lewd and lascivious molestation on a victim under 12, according to police.
The charges came after 50 officers from the Pinellas Park Police Department, state Probation and Parole, Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement converged on the Butterfly Lodge Motel, 12500 U.S.19 N, about 7:15 p.m. to conduct surprise probation checks on 34 known sex offenders, 15 of which have the designation of sexual predator.
The offenders have various probation conditions based on their past criminal history and convictions, Pinellas Park police said. Each must submit to a search of himself, his residence and any vehicle he has access to as a condition of probation. The officers were looking for probation violations that range from possession of narcotics, alcohol, weapons possession, or access to the internet. Pinellas Park police and probation and parole officers conducted the same type of search in February 2014, during which time 11 were arrested.
