Man charged for fourth time for failing to register as sex offender | Crime
SALISBURY - A Rowan County man has now been charged for the fourth time in eleven years for failing to register his status as a convicted sex offender.
John David Chambers, 48, was originally convicted of taking indecent liberties with a child in Mecklenburg County in 1995. Chambers served one year and three months on that conviction.
In 2001 he moved to Iredell County, but failed to notify the sheriff of his new address. As a result Chambers was charged with failure to register as a sex offender and sentenced to one year and six months in prison. In 2005 he faced the charge again for failing to notify the sheriff that he had a change of address in Iredell County. Chambers pulled another one year, six month prison term on that charge. In 2008 it happened for a third time, again in Iredell County, only this time he was sentenced to three years in prison.
Now Chambers has been charged with failure to register after moving to Rowan County. Chambers was located, charged, and booked into the Rowan County Detention Center just after 2:00 pm. Chambers is being held without bond.
Chambers criminal past also includes forgery, misdemeanor breaking and entering, felony breaking and entering, assault on a female, and larceny.
