Wanted Sex Offender Claims He's A Former Prisoner Of War, Reports Say
James Meece may target single women in their 50's, authorities say. He's also known to have a wide variety of tattoos all over his body.
Convicted sex offender James Meece was found found guilty of sexually assaulting a child under the age of 13 in the 1990's. Once he was released from prison, he never complied with his sex offender status and took off. Reports say Meece has pretended to be a POW and a Vietnam Veteran, but authorities say this is a lie and he was never deployed and never saw any type of combat.
It's possible Meece may have tried to remove some of his tattoos and not with the help of a laser, but by using salt or sand paper. It's possible he could have scarring in areas on his skin. Reports say he has a past criminal history and was convicted of rape in Ohio in 1980 and has also been previously convicted of weapons offenses and fraud in the 1960's. It's possible he's targeting single women in their 50's and has ties to California, Colorado and the Midwest. He may also be using dentures.
