Sex offender's Facebook page lands him in jail | News
Brooksville, FL-- Deputies arrested a registered sex offender Thursday after linking him to a social media account utilized to make obscene comments to a female online.
According to reports, they arrested 30-year-old Robert Wiley Martin at the Brooksville Probation Office after they received a tip about a Facebook account belonging to him, but listed under the alias "Robert Batten".
The page displayed photos that allowed officials to identify Martin as the actual account holder.
Though Martin initially denied having the account and/or any e-mail or internet access, reports say he later admitted that the account was his, but that he did not use it.
As a part of Martin's sex offender registration obligations, officials say he is required to report the existence of any such accounts to the Sheriff's Office.
The Facebook account was developed in March of 2012 and Martin failed to report this information, which ultimately lead to his arrest.
Martin was charged with Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Obligations and transported to the Hernando County Detention Center, where he is being held on a $20,000 bond.
