CASSVILLE, Mo. -- Barry County sheriff's deputies arrested a convicted child rapist from Texas who has eluded law enforcement officers for 12 years.   James Brown, 64, was featured on the TV show "America's Most Wanted " and likely has lived near Cassville for three or four years. Sheriff Mick Epperly says Brown was convicted of sexually assaulting a child and was sentenced to life in prison in 1999.   A judge sentenced Brown and then allowed him to be temporarily released from custody so he could take care of his affairs before going to prison.  Brown never returned.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Becoming a mom changed much of Kathryn Parsons' perspective.  One of those changes? She now checks sex offender registries, all in the name of keeping her son safe. "It just helps with peace of mind. Just knowing I'm safe, if he's outside, I feel more safe. " The State Highway Patrol is simplifying the search with a new email warning system where you set the terms - and it's taking off. "At the end of the day on Friday, we had 113 people signed up. As of today, over 1,000," said Sgt. Dan Bracker with the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A Greene County judge ordered a former teacher to post a $75,000 bond after hearing allegations that Alison Peck violated her probation for statutory rape.  Circuit Judge Calvin Holden said he believes Peck is a "danger to society" who has done nothing to rehabilitate herself after being convicted in three counties for having sex with one of her 16-year-old students in the winter and spring of 2009. Holden scheduled a hearing on Friday after a state probation and parole officer filed a report that says Peck violated her probation by failing to register as a sex offender every 90 days as required by law; failing to register as a sex offender within three days of moving to a new home in Springfield, which is another part of the state law; for using illegal drugs; and for failing to complete a sex offender counseling program.  Because Peck has a new defense attorney, Anissa Bluebaum , who said she hadn't had time to prepare Peck's defense, Holden continued the hearing on the probation violation allegations until March 25.  If Holden finds she violated her probation on her statutory rape conviction in Greene County, he could impose the five-year prison sentence that was suspended in lieu of her probation.  He could also order 120 days of shock prison time, followed by a continuation of her probation.

BRANSON, Mo.-- A Craigslist ad is catching some attention in the Ozarks. We got a snapshot of it before it disappeared. It says "teething baby for sale," listed for 50-bucks out of Branson. The ad says the baby boy won't stop crying and I need some sleep.   I'm not looking to give him away, only to rent him out.   He'd be great for a teenager who thinks they might want kids.. he screams all the time.   I will provide all baby food and diapers.   Cash only.
