HOLMES COUNTY – A Holmes County man was arrested July 14 after a complaint was filed with the Sex Offender Compliance Investigator for the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO).

The complaint stated that James Blevins had been sending explicit and obscene messages via Facebook to a third party, regarding a 13 year old girl.

Investigators determined that Blevins had a Facebook account that had not been registered with Florida Department of Law Enforcement or HCSO.

Blevins status as a Sexual Predator requires by law that he report using any electronic mail address or internet identifier.

After obtaining an arrest warrant for failure to register, Blevins was subsequently arrested.
