YAPHANK, N.Y. (AP) A paroled sex offender linked to the notorious case of a girl who was hidden away in a dungeon more than a decade ago was arrested in North Carolina, police said.
Sal Inghilleri was arrested Monday after he filled out a credit application at a car dealership using his own name, said Officer William Judge, of the Suffolk County police, on the Web site of The New York Times.
Sheriff's officers found Inghilleri "hiding in the closet of his girlfriend's house," in Rockingham, N.C., Judge said.
Inghilleri, 54, had violated the New York State Sex Offender Registration Act, also known as Megan's Law, by failing to notify authorities that he was moving from his Bay Shore home earlier this year, police said. A warrant for his arrest was issued by Suffolk County in July.
Inghilleri served 12 years for molesting Katie Beers, who at the age of 9 was kidnapped and stashed in a dungeon by another man John Esposito at a Bay Shore home for 16 days.
Inghilleri had known Esposito and, during the investigation into the kidnapping, it was revealed that Inghilleri had sexually abused Beers.
He was convicted of two counts of sexual abuse. Esposito was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 1994 after prosecutors agreed to a plea bargain to spare the victim the pain of testifying.
The Credit Agencies report to Law Enforcement?
Apparently they do. It makes sense. Somebody with an outstanding felony warrant is not likely to be a good credit risk. Probably in exchange for the info from law enforcement, they report when wanted felons are applying for credit
Rockingham NC used to have the best McDonald’s in America(tm). We used to drive through there to go to Myrtle Beach before we discovered a better route through Carthage.
Fine with me, as long as it’s voluntary on the part of the credit agencies. Possibly, though, they simply report the “warrant out for arrest of this individual” as part of the credit report (something a potential lender or landlord would have good reason to want to know), and then the business receiving the report may choose to, or be required by state or federal law (depending on the source of the warrant) to report to police that they have a fugitive standing right in front of them.
In order to provide the warrant information to the business ordering the credit report, the credit agencies must be receiving data about outstanding warrants from law enforcement, and (hopefully on a voluntary basis) entering it into their systems. It’s clear the agencies are receiving info from law enforcement — not clear that they are providing it, however it may be a deal whereby the agencies get the info in exchange for agreeing to report to law enforcement when there’s a credit report request on an individual for whom there’s a warrant out.
Thank God he’s been rehabilitated.
ACLU rep? Who gives a flip? Mr. Scum should, at least, be placed into jail for life.
this perp should still be behind bars - but it would be nice to know whether this is standard?
Although a friend of mine, a retired grandmother in her mid 70's, recently took her 17 year old car to be worked and the shop was able to access everything that had ever been done to it since she bought it and before she moved across the country...but I think that may be because the car (VIN #) is tracked so future buyers can know? Not like running someones Soc Sec through law enforcement for any action.
The four lane Hwy 220 is closed from Candor to Rockginham while they bring it up to Interstate specs. Came back from Cherry Grove last month and had to take the old 2 lane road for about 25 miles.
The dungeon-master himself:
Or vice-versa... the authorities notify credit agencies they are seeking individuals/ss #/license #.
How the hell was this guy ever released?
More likely detectives just pull credit reports on fugitives periodically and if the idiot has applied somewhere his address will show up. One thing about these criminals are they are seldom our best and brightest (not many Ted Bundys out there).
By the way, even if he applies for a cell phone or payday loan, and uses his correct address, it will show up in the bureau. And hopefully there are law enforcement agencies who have the right to access this info (despite the Demmies best efforts at protecting perps of all kinds).
Been there, done that, I agree about Mac’s. I stop on my way to Fort Bragg,,,,
