Joseph White’s Leash Was Far Too Long - Convicted Sex Offender Fails To Register, Arrested For Molesting Another Child
Sacramento, California (The Weekly Vice) - Joseph Edward White, a 38-year-old Sacramento, California sex offender was arrested again, this time for groping an eight-year-old girl.
The May 21 incident also led to the arrest of his live-in girlfriend, Nicole Elizabeth Buzzetta, 28.
It all started on the 4400 block of Elk Horn Boulevard, in an apartment complex where the little girl told her parents an unknown man had touched her inappropriately as she walked through a parking lot. (Ed. note: Police did not address the obvious question of why the girl was walking around her apartment complex parking lot unsupervised.)
Based on a tip, Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies learned White, who is a convicted sex offender, was living in the building and arrested him on June 20th at his home. There, they executed search and outstanding warrants (for failing to register as a sex offender), allegedly turning up child pornography. (Reports indicate the little girl and/or other witnesses then identified White as the culprit in the May 21st incident.)
Buzzetta was taken into custody as well, charged with possessing child porn. White remains in jail in Sacramento County on charges of child pornography and committing a lewd act on a child, with bail having been raised to $1.25 million.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
This is the second incident we've covered in the last week involving an unregistered, convicted sex offender moving off the radar and being accused of another crime against children. Just a thought.
Also, we have to question the arrest of Buzzetta. There doesn't seem to be any evidence the child porn is hers... and if we start arresting those who live with child pornographers and other perverts, we may soon be violating everyone's civil rights.
