Officials: Iowa Sex Offender Found Under Kid’s Bed

Associated Press

BETTENDORF, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a convicted sex offender faces felony charges after he was found hiding under a child’s bed in Bettendorf.

The Quad-City Times reports the two charges were filed Tuesday for 33-year-old Julien Martell Skipper. He remains at the Scott County Jail. Court records do not list an attorney.

Skipper was found April 19 hiding at a neighbor’s apartment as police investigated a disturbance call. He was arrested at the time and charged with possession with intent to deliver and a parole violation.

Police say Skipper failed to notify authorities he had been living in the neighbor’s apartment since early March. He also didn’t disclose that two children ages 5 and 10 lived in the apartment.

Skipper was convicted in 2007 of lascivious acts with a child.
