SHERMAN -- A sex offender is now behind bar after failing to register in Grayson County. Temika Lashay Anderson, 26, has been sentenced to 18 months in jail for not registering with the Sherman Police as a sex offender.

Sex offenders have a certain number of days to comply after being released. If they fail to register, a warrant is issued for their arrest.

Anderson also had another 18-month sentence tacked on for violating her probation.

Anderson plead guilty to both charges. She could serve up to three years in jail.

    To Anonymous - How can you put "just" in front of exposed herself? There is no "just exposing yourself". What if she "just" exposed herself to an adult male - - or what if she "just" exposed herself to a 3 year old little boy? Sick is sick. A sex offender is a sex "offender". Three years is a good sentence. That's my opinion.

    Bottom line, she broke the law and will serve her time, the maximum I hope. Sex offenders have a problem, from rapists to child molesters. At least she is locked up at this time.

    Exactly. The system does need to be refined. Its purpose is to protect the community, not humiliate offenders. Only molesters & rapists should be required to register. Those are the only ones that the community needs to be concerned about.

    I concur with anonymous. We don't know what the "sex offense" was. Everyone assumes that it means they molested children. A 19 year old boy who has consensual sex with his 17 year old girlfriend can be charged and convicted as a "sex offender". The system needs to be refined, as evidenced by the constant lashing out that occurs on this blog with every sex offender story. We should get the WHOLE story before going off on how someone should be locked up forever and castrated.....

    To Jack and that girl location, I'm going to pray for you and ask God to forgive you for your statement. I have three little ones, and I understand your concern but we are not judge of that young lady. Neither of us know why she is in the position she's in. The bible says in Matthew 7:1 and Luke 6:37 that we are not to judge, or we to will be judged. We all have committed sins in our life at some point and time. What ever she did, I know God has forgiven her. Just like he forgave you and me. God Bless You!

    The problem is that the term "sex offender" can mean any number of things. She could have just (exposed herself) in public. In that case, I think 3 years would be excessive. edited by Staff

    this perv needs to be away if not we have just ourselves to blame for the next person that gets hurt by her

    3 years? Is that all? She should be spending a lot more time than that behind bars for being a sex offender. She has already proven that she can't be trusted by failing to register. Why not just put her in jail and throw away the key. She doesn't deserve to be any where that other people are.
