Convicted Sex Offender Remains In Jail

By  | 

A convicted sex offender accused of watching young girls outside a local elementary school and "waiting for the right one" will stay in jail.

Wednesday, a judge said Barry Burrous violated his probation when he was outside that school in Cañon City earlier this year. Burrous was on probation for a 2010 sexual assault conviction, for molesting two teenage girls.

Deputies say Burrous was seen outside McKinley Elementary School on Feb. 7 driving slowly and watching kids who were walking home from school.

"Burrous was specifically watching young girls at the school," the Fremont County Sheriff's Office said in a statement at the time.

The judge said Wednesday that Burrous will have to remain in jail while waiting to be sentenced for violating his probation, and undergo another sex evaluation. He'll be sentenced in June, and is expected to receive more jail time.
