Osceola County Man Arrested for Sex Crime

As a 19-year old, Terry Bigford served jail time for sexually assaulting a 13-year old girl in 2004.

Reed City Police arrested Bigford again last week after they say he had sex with a 14-year old girl at a motel in Reed City.

Police say Bigford met with the girl in Reed City at a motel before her parents found out about the relationship and turned Bigford in.

Bigford has been on the sex offenders list since 2004, but the registry can't stop every crime.

9&10's Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Jacob Johnson looked deeper into the sex offender registry and have more details.
