A 23-year-old Brashear man was arrested at 1:18 p.m. Thursday at his County Road 1158 residence by Investigator Charles Humphries for failure to comply with sex offender laws which require individuals with prior sex convictions to register with local authorities.

Humphries said authorities were first alerted to Garrett Mahew Bursby, after he was reportedly seen April 26 during regular school hours at a county school, where he was thought not to have checked in with school officials.

“Anytime convicted sex offenders are at schools during normal school hours, they have to notify the school they are on the property. He had not notified the school,” Humphries said. “They may have a chaperone while on the campus, if the school is OK with them being there. It is a felony if caught without notification.”

On further investigation, Bursby was found not to have complied with terms for him to register with authorities as a sex offender as required, which resulted in a warrant being issued for his arrest, according to the investigator. Humphries served the warrant and took Bursby into custody May 22.

If anyone sees a person they believe to be a convicted sex offender on a school campus during school hours, Humphries recommends notifying the local sheriff’s office or police department so officers can verify whether the person is a sex offender, then make sure those who are have checked in with school officials as required.
