Police: Girl found with sex offender in Maine
KITTERY, Maine—Police in Kittery, Maine, say a young girl has been placed in the care of the state's child welfare agency after being discovered with a sex offender from Ohio.
Police Chief Paul Callaghan says an officer noticed the man and the girl walking in woods Thursday night near the Rex Motel, and recognized the man from a notification from Ohio authorities. Callaghan says the man, the girl and the girl's mother were all interviewed by police.
Callaghan told the Portsmouth Herald ( http://bit.ly/Jg3S8a) that authorities will investigate whether the girl's mother gave permission for the girl to be alone with the man. He says the man, who was not identified, had not registered as a sex offender in Maine but still had time to do so without being penalized.
