Statesville sex offender charged fourth time with failing to register address
Charged and released again
Michael Terrell Borders of Statesville, a registered sex offender, has been charged a fourth time with failing to register his current address.
Borders was released on bond for the third charge of failing to register his address in September 2015. He was assigned a registration officer by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Craig Bess tried to locate Borders between Sept. 29 and Dec. 8.
Issuing another warrant, Bess took Borders before a magistrate, who set his bond at $3,000 and again released him.
The 27-year-old was convicted in August 2008 for kidnapping a minor and required to register as a sex offender, which he did. In October 2008, Borders was charged with failing to register his correct address. He was found guilty and served active time.
In September 2011, Borders was again charged with failing to register his current address. He was convicted again and placed on probation.
In July 2015, Borders was again charged for the same offense and held under $9,999 bond. He was released when he made bond in September 2015, and now has been charged again and released again.
