LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A convicted sex offender suspected of trying to conceal his whereabouts was put behind bars on Thursday.

Joseph Morton, 46, was arrested Wednesday morning in Norco for alleged parole violations.

Deputies located Morton while conducting a parole compliance check at a house on Reservoir Drive, Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Matthew Sims said.

Morton, who has prior convictions for lewd acts on a child and indecent exposure, had not registered the address with law enforcement, Sims said.

He is being held at the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning with a bail set at $5,000.

    I live across the street from where joseoh Morton was staying after his release he came back to reservoir dr. on sunday he took off after i posted signs of said sex offender rents room from home owner. As of today none of us know where he is, he has not registered but I will keep my signs up until I know for sure this man is not coming back to our neighborhood. It is pretty sad a convicted felon that has these convictions can run the streets without even his porole officer knowing his whereabouts!

      Shame on you! Coleen

      You don’t know the fact that this man has been criminally wronged by the State of California since he was 18 yrs old. He was wrongfully placed on the State of California Sex Offender role and forced to register because his now ex-wife, Evelyn who is “WHITE” was performing oral sex on him in a car. She was a 17 yrs old at that time and she had runaway from home and was living/working on the streets of Hollywood. Joseph Morton was certified by the State of California Regional Center for the disabled. Because he was Black and his girlfriend/ex-wife was “White” the District Attorney filed charges against him that incorrectly has “Evelyn Morton” as under the age of 4 yrs old. THIS IS the CRIME AGAINST Mr. Morton that the world will see the discrimination and criminal acts that came be confirmed by the Court Docket. LOOK IT UP!! Stop posting lies fabricated by the STATE of CALIFORNIA.
