Sex offender arrested at elementary school

A registered sex offender was arrested at a local elementary school after he was found sitting outside waiting to give his former girlfriend a present.

According to a report from the Greenwood Police Department, police responded to Mathews Elementary School just before 11 a.m. Friday after an employee called and said that her ex-boyfriend was sitting in his car outside the school. Police arrived and found David Marshall Dawson, 35, of 167 Nautilus St. in Aiken, still sitting outside the school. The complainant told police that she already had law enforcement officials ask Dawson not to have any contact with her.

According to the report, Dawson told police that he was waiting to give his girlfriend her birthday present. Police did observe a wrapped gift in Dawson’s vehicle. Dawson admitted to police that he had been advised to have no further contact with the complainant, but that they had spoken since and he believed that they were back together.

When police checked Dawson’s license, it was discovered that he was a registered sex offender. Dawson was convicted of second degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, a sex crime involving a child between 11 and 14 years of age, in Virginia in 2005. Records indicate that he was sentenced to 20 years in prison, suspended to five years in prison and 15 years of probation. According to officials with SLED, Dawson transferred his probation to Aiken in Nov. 2011.

School officials had Dawson placed on trespass notice for the property. Dawson was arrested and charged with disturbing schools and given a $2,130 surety bond, which he posted Monday afternoon.

I'm very disturbed as to why Marshall Dawson was released at all. In the wake of recent school events and this mans history....he should be in prison. I think its great that the school and the police handled it well but who is the idiot that put him back on the street? I'm sure whoever it is doesn't have a child at Matthews Elementary.
