SAN DIEGO — A man convicted in 1991 of a sex crime involving a minor is facing a year in jail after being found guilty of failing to register as a sex offender, the City Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.

Daniel Lackey, 56, is required to register as a sex offender for life in California as a result of his 1991 conviction for lewd and lascivious acts on a child 14 or 15 years old.

Authorities said Lackey brought suspicion on himself by taking photographs of neighborhood children in Serra Mesa. Neighbors contacted police, and Lackey told officers he was a transient.

However, an investigation revealed that Lackey was living in a single-family residence in Serra Mesa.

Registered sex offenders are required to report their true and correct address and to report any address at which they regularly reside.

Failing to provide accurate information to law enforcement as a registered sex offender is a crime in California.

Lackey, who was found guilty on Tuesday, is scheduled to be sentenced March 4.

    A problem with the registry is it relies on the honesty of the registrant to update the information. If you’re going to get fired by reporting a job, you’re not going to report the job. If you will get evicted if you report your address, you’re not going to report your address. If you will get harassed, ostracized and maybe even a victim of vigilantism by posting your email address, you’re not going to report it. This information should be for law enforcement eyes only so that ‘good’ people will not make life hell for registrants. Actually, I find the registry to be nothing more than a witch hunt and unconstitutional. That is why drunk drivers who kill over 6,000 children each year, drug dealers, murderers, arsonists and burglars don’t have to be on a registry because – none of those crimes harm children and people don’t need to know where they live to protect themselves from them (sarcasm). I’d rather see an online gun registry so I know whose home not to allow my children to visit for over 36,000 people are accidentally killed annually by “playing with guns.” But, we don’t really care about children, we just love talking about sex and who has it.A problem with the registry is it relies on the honesty of the registrant to update the information.

      It seems that Daniel Lackey’s initial offense that landed him on the registry happened 25 years ago when he was 27 or 28 years old.
