MANCHESTER, Iowa — Authorities said a Manchester man is charged with letting his brother who is a registered sex offender spend time alone with the man’s son.
Cory A. Davis, 29, is charged in Iowa District Court of Delaware County with child endangerment. He made an initial court appearance earlier this month.
Court documents state Davis allowed his brother, Christopher M. Davis, 26, of Manchester, to walk his 8-year-old son to school on several occasions in September and October. Christopher Davis also spends unsupervised time with Cory Davis’ son, and the boy has been left with Christopher Davis overnight on multiple occasions, police said.
Christopher Davis told authorities that he walked into Lambert Elementary School in Manchester three times “without the permission of the school administrator” and in violation of his sex offender restrictions, according to court documents.
The Iowa Sex Offender Registry states that Davis was convicted in Delaware County of lascivious acts with a child in 2011. It states that he was 18 at the time of the incident, and his victim was a girl age 14 to 17.
Authorities said Cory Davis was aware of Christopher Davis’ sex offender registry requirements when he left him alone with his son.
Christopher Davis pleaded not guilty recently to a charge of failure to comply with the sex offender registry-exclusion zone violation in relation to the incident.
