Registered Sex Offender John Peter Wakeley of Acworth, Georgia has been arrested and is being held without bond after he was seen loitering around a public park where there were children.
A detective with the Acworth Police Department just happened to be instructing a crime scene class for a group of citizens at Logan Farm Park when she noticed the 54-year-old man walking near a playground. Detective Endicott recognized Wakeley as someone that the Acworth PD regularly contacts through home visits to make sure they are complying with the sex offender registry.
A warrant was secured and Wakeley arrested.
John Wakeley was convicted of Child Molestation in February 1996 and was added to the registry when he got out of prison in March of 2000.
