Raleigh, N.C. — A registered sex offender was arrested Tuesday after being spotted on the grounds of a Raleigh elementary school.
Authorities said Ronnie Earl Burnette, 52, of 1420 S. Wilmington Street, was on Wiley Elementary School property, despite the fact that conditions of the sex offender registry forbid him from being on the property of any public or private school.
Burnette was charged with being a sex offender on a property with a child on the premises. He was being held under $20,000 bond.
Authorities did not say what Burnette was doing at the school, but said he never entered the building.
