WHITTIER (CBS)  — A deputy with the sheriff’s Parks Bureau arrested a convicted child molester outside the Sorenson Library in East Whittier Wednesday.

Michael Pappas, 48, of Whittier, was booked at the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station on suspicion of annoying a child, according to deputies.

A deputy allegedly saw Pappas standing over a 16-year-old boy outside the library. The deputy said the boy seemed nervous and upset.

The boy told the deputy that Pappas offered him $25 if he would go home with him and help him inject his diabetes medicine, deputies said. They added that the boy refused but the suspect was persistent.

Pappas was detained, and the deputy checking his background learned he had been convicted of lewd or lascivious acts on a child and annoying a juvenile. Bail was set at $150,000.

Anyone with information about Pappas was asked to call sheriff’s Sgt. Al Leyva at (310) 877-7498.

    only if you aren’t to bright. otherwise you’d watch the video and see how stupid a statement that is.

    Hey drink n drive, have you been living up to your moniker? The name Pappas could be anything, including Greek. The fact that he has dark eyes and hair and a swarthy complexion only means that he has dark features. His ancestors could have come from anywhere.

    Besides, he just proves that convicted sex offenders should never be released because they don’t rehabilitate.
