A convicted sex offender from Nashville faces a return to jail after he was caught here in the company of two small children.The registered sex offender, Kenneth Lee Burrus, 32, has been charged with violation of the sexual offender registry and could face up to two years under state law.Burrus was tracked down by McMinnville police officers after they received a tip he was in McMinnville and was circumventing the requirement of his status as a sex offender.“He was in violation of the sexual offender registry by cutting off his ankle monitor while he was in McMinnville,” said McMinnville police detective Todd Rowland.Burrus was directed to wear an ankle monitor as part of his sentence. The monitor contains a GPS device so his release supervision officer knows his whereabouts. Removing the monitor basically eliminated the officer’s ability to track him.Along with cutting off his ankle monitor, Burrus was reportedly in direct violation of the terms of his release.“He was located on Hardaway Street (West Riverside) in the company of two children, ages 3 and 5,” Rowland revealed.
