KWTX is reporting that James Paul Hicks, 51, is already a registered sex offender, and now he's allegedly proven why.

Back in April, a 7-year old girl made an accusation. The following investigation led to a warrant being served Thursday.

It seems Hicks has already done a six-year hitch for aggravated sexual assault of a child.

He's currently in the Bell County Jail with a $200,000 bond.

Why are we not tagging/monitoring sex offenders 24/7? Making them wear ankle monitors, or even having cameras in their homes, does seem like a violation of their rights, but at what point do you lose your rights? How about hurting innocent children?

Imagine how many jobs you could create if you hired people to monitor registered sex offenders.
