A 20 year-old convicted child molester has broken his probation after admitting to having a 6th grader as a friend on facebook.
The Grimes County District Attorney says that's just one of 12 probation conditions Charles Makofski has violated.
He was convicted of sexually assaulting a 7 year-old female relative in 2008 and was sentenced to 90 days in jail, plus ten years deferred adjudication by a district court judge.
News 3 spoke with that judge and the Grimes County district attorney, who says, he's disappointed, but not surprised Makofski's in trouble again.
Two months worth of cooperation between the Grimes County District Attorney's office and probation officers is revealing some shocking details concerning 20 year-old sex offender, Charles Makofski.
Grimes County District Attorney Tuck McLain said, "He had apps for facebook, twitter and myspace...had him basically acknowledge that those were his accounts and those were his posts and yea, he'd been doing this a while."
The state is alleging Makofski violated 12 conditions of his probation sentence.
The violations range from not attending mandatory sex offender counseling, to using computers and smart phones without tracking devices, among other things.
McLain added, "Using social media to basically, establish contact with young girls, one of them at least, we know is about fifth or sixth grade."
506th Judicial District Court Judge, Albert McCaig, gave the previous sentence of 90 days in jail and ten years deferred adjudication for admitting to aggravated sexual assault of a female relative, who was only seven at the time.
Some thought the sentence was too lenient and sparked some controversy.
McCaig will oversee Makofski's hearing in April and decide whether or not to send him to prison for the rest of his life.
McCaig released this statement saying, "Beyond the above information and our discussions over the phone it would not be appropriate to comment further on the disposition of the matter other than to say that due consideration will be given..."
"We believe sex offenders need to go to prison, I don't have confidence in the rehabilitation of sex offenders," said McLain.
Judge McCaig says he can't comment on whether he regrets allowing this sex offender to remain free on probation.
Late this afternoon, we spoke over the phone with the mother of the little girl Makofski admitted to abusing.
She says she's not surprised by his new admissions.
Tomorrow we will bring you her reactions to the latest allegations.
