A sex offender is in jail this morning because police say he violated his restrictions.
After receiving a tip, police found that Dale Lanham, 36, lived less than 300 feet from Hopkins Elementary School in Somerset. This is in violation of the Sex Offender Residence Restriction that he must live at least 1,000 feet away from a school or daycare.
Lanham has been a registered sex offender for 20 years because of a sexual abuse conviction.
He is now in the Pulaski County Detention Center.
