Registered Sex Offender Arrested for Failing to Notify of address change
Charles Wayne Benham, 51 years old was arrested and charged with failing to notify sheriff’s office of a change of address, as required for registered sex offenders and being within 300’ of a playground as forbidden by a registered sex offender. Both charges are felonies. Morganton Public Safety officers were called to investigate a suspicious person around the area of the Greenway-near Judge’s Riverside-Greenlee Ford Road. When officers arrived, they encountered Charles Wayne Benham sitting on a picnic table, near the restrooms. A records check indicated that Benham was a registered sex offender from out of state (California-San Diego) and had transferred his registration to North Carolina at an address on Smokey Creek. Benham reported to officers that he had been living homeless under the Silver Creek Bridge for at least two weeks. NC Law requires a registered sex offender to notify the Sheriff of any address change within three (3) business days. Benham had not been living at the Smokey Creek Address for some time and according to the DCI/NCIC database has a Smokey Creek address. Additionally, Benham had been loitering around the Greenway for the past few days, sleeping in the bathroom. The picnic table that Benham was seated on was less than 200’ from a playground. NC law prohibits registered sex offenders from loitering 300’ from a playground for children.    Benham received a $10,000 secured bond and has a first appearance in Burke County Court Monday, May 11th, 2015.
