A convicted sex offender was arrested for the second time in six days Tuesday, after police say he moved too close to a Perryville, preschool and refused to move. 31-year-old Nathaniel G. McDorman was arrested Jan. 31 on two counts of failing to register as a sex offender and a third for moving within 1,000 feet of Caring Corner Preschool at 500 W. North St. in Perryville. He was arrested again Tuesday, just four days after posting bond on the original charge, and taken into custody after police warnings were ignored. McDorman faces four felonies and possible punishment of up to 22 years in prison, and he was being held Tuesday night on a $2,500 bond. The preschool director says they do occasional Internet checks, but rely on law enforcement to keep registered offenders away. McDorman told deputies he could not afford to move again.
