Sex Offender Enrolled in School as Seventh Grader

Mommy Alert! Beware of Your Child's Classmates

You can never be too careful of who your child is befriending — even while at school. A sex offender passed as a seventh grade boy and enrolled in Arizona schools. Neil Havens Rodreick II, 30, successfully pulled off the ruse for two years with the help of men posing as his cousin, uncle, and grandfather. According to CNN:

Rodreick attended charter schools in Surprise, Payson, and Prescott Valley starting in 2005, authorities said. They say he shaved and wore pancake makeup to help him appear younger, convincing teachers, students, and administrators that he was a young boy named Casey.

Though no victims of sexual abuse have come forward, Rodreick once grabbed a classmate's rear. A search of his residence turned up more evidence. It said:

When authorities searched the four men's home in Chino Valley, a community northwest of Phoenix, they found more than 600 graphic photos and videos of child pornography and a sex tape that depicts Rodreick and a boy between the ages of 10 and 13 having sex in a motel room.

What are your thoughts on this story — is the school system to blame for not checking paperwork more carefully?
