therefore public domain, blog post by John Hoff
Following my blog post about sex offender Marco Mondaine, more information came into my hands including this mug shot, above, from the Kansas Public Offender Registery.
It turns out that Mondaine has charted a criminal path that seems deliberately designed to cause confusion between Kansas City, Missouri and that portion of Kansas City which is in Wyandotte County, Kansas...
According to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Mondaine was convicted in Wyandotte County, Kansas of Aggravated Indecent Solicitation of a Child and Attempted Aggravated Indecent Liberties with a child. Maddeningly, like many government websites including MNCIS, the URL to this information isn't a "hot link" that can be shared but I did manage to obtain the photo, above) The date of the offense was February 9, 1998. Mondaine was convicted on July 19 of the following year. The site lists him as a big guy of 325 pounds, standing 5 foot 11 inches. He was registered in Kansas as a sex offender on January 11, 2000, but when he moved out of Kansas in 2003 he became listed as "moved out of state."
Where did he move? Well, I don't know if there were any places between here and there, but it appears eventually he ended up in Minneapolis. But before ending up in Minneapolis, Marco didn't move very far. In fact, he just moved to the other side of Kansas City but in the state of MISSOURI.
Here's where the "Kansas City Confusion" starts. AFTER Mondaine got out of prison for committing these sex offenders, there were two counts of "failure to register as a sex offender." That was in 2010 and it was in Jackson County, Missouri, which is one of two Missouri counties that includes portions of Kansas City. At one time, Marco apparently lived at 4023 Prospect Ave., Kansas City, Missouri, according to this website linked here.
Commenters keep saying interesting things about Marco Mondaine's activities in Minneapolis but I have been unable to confirm that information to what I consider my own blogging standards.
