Update: New Program Informing Boyle County About Sex Offenders

Local agencies in Boyle County are sharing information and notifying the community about non-compliant sex offenders.
The Boyle County sheriff says 36-year old Edwin Riley is a non-compliant sex offender who was convicted of raping a 14-year old girl and is also a suspect in nearly 50 area burglaries.

The Sheriff's Office says he was caught after 20 to 30 neighbors surrounded his apartment and kept him inside until deputies arrived and arrested him.

The neighbors found out about Riley through a one-of-a-kind program where the Boyle County Sheriff's Office works with a school resource officer and the media to get the word out about non-compliant sex offenders.

Sheriff Elliott says since they started this program, they've arrested four non-compliant sex offenders, and four others moved out of the county.
