This case involves negligent supervision of a parolee in Missouri. The parolee was a 68-year old male and registered sex offender on supervision for a prior sex offense. After a few weeks, the parolee failed to check in as required by his supervision terms. The department of corrections conducted a search of the parolee’s residence and place of employment but the parolee was not found. No further searches were conducted to locate the parolee. Two weeks later, the parolee raped a 9-year-old boy in the public restroom of a local gas station. It was alleged that the department of corrections failed to conduct a thorough search to locate the dangerous parolee.
