Registered sex offender charged in child abduction back in Carteret County

Published: Sunday, October 14, 2012 at 05:45 PM.

Authorities said Newman, a registered sex offender, had been in contact with Abigaile several times prior to her disappearance.

Lefevers said Newman, an acquaintance, had apparently texted his daughter without him knowing it.

Newman was placed on the sex offender registry in 2005 for convictions in connection with two counts of engaging in a sex offense with a 14-year-old girl in 2003 in Stokes County.

Newman was being held on a $1.2 million bond.
