Talladega County Sheriff’s deputies recently charged two men with violating the Alabama Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, according to Sgt. Mike Jones.
Bobby Daryl Horn, 53, was arrested Oct. 30 after several people complained that he was not living at the address listed for him on the state registry. Jones said Horn turned himself in, telling investigators that he had been busy looking for a new place to live and had forgotten to notify authorities that he was moving.
According to the state registry, Horn was supposed to be living at 1893 Brickyard Road in Sylacauga. Jones said Horn would not tell investigators where he had been staying since leaving that location.
Horn was charged with two counts of first-degree rape and three counts of first-degree sodomy in August 1986. He was convicted in Talladega County Circuit Court six months later. He was released from prison in 2016.
According to the state registry, Horn’s victims included an 8-year-old boy and three girls, ages 9, 10 and 11.
Horn’s bond was set at $5,000 by District Judge Jeb Fannin. Horn remained in the Talladega County Metro Jail Monday afternoon.
Shannon Latroy Mosley, 34, of 182 Tippus Road, Munford, was arrested Wednesday at the Talladega County Courthouse while attempting to renew his driver’s license, Jones said.
State law forbids sex offenders from attempting to alter or deface the portion of a state identification that names them as a convicted sex offender. Mosley is suspected of trying to scrape the designation off of his old license.
The old license had expired. Courthouse personnel noted the damage to the old license and notified the sheriff’s office. Fannin set Mosley’s bond at $2,500. Mosley posted bond last week.
Mosley was charged in 2011 with the second-degree rape of a 15-year-old girl. He was convicted the following year and was released from prison 2014.
SORNA violations are class C felonies in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years prison.
