Iredell County sex offender charged with using fake name online

Iredell County sheriff’s investigators have charged a registered sex offender with using a fake name on social media.

Carnito Cannail Glaspy, 32, of Statesville was arrested and jailed on $5,000 bail this week after investigators found him using the name “Daniel Glaspy” online, Sheriff Darren Campbell said Friday.

Registered sex offenders in North Carolina must notify their sheriff’s office of any online identifiers they use or intend to use. An online identifier is defined as an email address, instant message screen name, user ID, chat or other Internet communication name, the sheriff said.

While trying to verify Glaspy’s registered address, a sheriff’s deputy discovered Glaspy was using the fake online name, Campbell said.
