Sex offender living in Madera home where kids play; Fresno County probationer also jailed
MADERA COUNTY – A citizen’s tip concerning a registered sex offender led deputies to Danny Bryant, 65, of Madera, who was found living in a home with easy access to kids.Deputies discovered that Bryant, who was registered at an address on Avenue 11, was actually renting a room roughly 13 miles away in a house on Wabash Road in north Madera. According to Bryant, he had been living at the new address for the past 3 weeks.
Sex offenders are required by law to re-register every time they relocate and they must do so within 5 days of the move.
Bryant was not only out of compliance, he was living in a home where children are sometimes present.
Danny Bryant was taken into custody Wednesday night, Oct. 3, and booked into Madera County Department of Corrections for failing to re-register.
Also in the home was a Fresno woman, Esmeralda Luna, who is on probation out of Fresno. She too was arrested for being in possession of marijuana as well as a controlled substance.
