Convicted sex offender arrested for trying to alter child's birth certificate so he could get custody (Knox County, Tennessee)

Details aren't clear here. Was this guy the biological father, but left off the birth certificate by a protective mother? Or was this a former boyfriend looking to gain sexual access to a child victim by establishing custody?

At any rate, this case illustrates the extreme means that sex offenders, molesters, and rapists will go to in order to establish unfettered access to new victims. Child custody now appears to be one of their favorite strategies. "Grown your own" victim and all that.

The would-be "father" is identified as DON ALLEN COLEMAN.

A convicted sex offender is back behind bars after officials say he tried to alter a child's birth certificate.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office arrested 36-year-old Don Allen Coleman on Tuesday morning. Deputies say he tried to change a child's birth certificate to show himself as the biological father so the child could live with him.

Coleman was convicted of aggravated sexual battery of a minor back in 2005.

He now faces several charges including violation of the sex offender registry and perjury.
