Convicted Stone County sex offender in custody after authorities find registration, reporting violations


A previously-convicted sex offender in Stone County is in custody after law enforcement officials say he violated registration and reporting requirements six times.

Stone County Circuit Court documents accuse Steven Paul Graves (pictured), 44, of creating six social media accounts between 2017 and 2019, and then failing to register those accounts with probation and parole authorities as required by law. Some of the platforms on which Graves is accused of registering the accounts include Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Plenty of Fish, and Gmail, the documents note.

Graves is now charged with six counts of failure to comply with registration and reporting requirements. His bond was set at $20,000.
