Johnston County Sex Offender Arrested

A sex offender living in Johnston County has been arrested for violating a condition of his release.

Francis Joseph Gebo Jr., 66, of Clayton is required to register his current address as a sex offender with local authorities.  Gebo listed his home address on Folden Drive near Clayton.   The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office recently learned Gebo had not been living at the address since July 2020 and failed to notify authorities he was now living on Big Pine Road.

Gebo was charged Oct. 7th with failing to register his address as a sex offender. He was held on a $50,000 secured bond at the Johnston County Jail.

According to the Sex Offender Registry, Gebo was convicted in California in 1991 for a lewd or lascivious act with a child under 14 that occurred in 1990.
