Citizens tips help police to serve us all

We tip our hat to the Escambia County (Ala.) Sheriff's Office for following up on tips that have led to another sex offender put behind bars.

The latest culprit was 32-year old Danny Hayes of Brewton who was charged with two counts of violating the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. Hayes apparently was working at a house in East Brewton that was less than 2,000 feet of a daycare center. Granted, Hayes was trying to be employed and earn a living, but he should have known better. We know he was given instructions from the court and from the sheriff's office when he registered.
