A registered sex offender is once again behind bars in Napa for violating his probation.
Jeffrey Brice Ogle, 38, was arrested Sept. 21 on two charges of breaking the terms of his five-year formal probation.
Ogle was convicted in January 2008 of four felony counts of possession of child pornography, 13 misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct, one count of prowling, two counts of eavesdropping, three counts of developing obscene matter depicting sexual contact of a person and three counts of peeping, according to court records.
He was released from prison and placed on probation Jan. 4, 2011.
Camera phone possession, tampering with ankle monitor alleged
Prior to his latest arrest, Ogle admitted he had failed to stay at least 100 yards from any place where children gather and that he had a cell phone with a camera, according to court documents.
Ogle’s most recent run-ins with the law started on May 11, this year, when a probation officer observed that Ogle’s "GPS," the ankle bracelet tracking his movements, showed he was on the campus of Mendocino College, the records said.
According to the terms of his probation, Ogle is required to register as a sex offender with campus police.
Ogle told the officer he was working at nearby job site and was unaware he had to register, according to court documents.
Then on June 5, Ogle admitted to authorities after failing a polygraph test that he was hiding a cell phone with a camera at his home, the records said.
Ogle’s woes worsened when he admitted to officers he'd found two ounces of marijuana while hiking, which he said he gave to a friend, the records said, adding that he did not tell the officers the friend’s name.
That same day, a probation search of Ogle’s residence turned up a utility knife in Ogle’s vehicle console, various adult Website addresses written on several pieces of paper and a baseball bat next to his bed, the documents said.
On June 27, probation was alerted that Ogle’s GPS had been tampered with.
When officers made contact with Ogle, he told them he had been working in his yard and may have bumped the device, courts records stated.
The next day, Ogle reported to probation holding the GPS device, stating the strap had broken, the records show.
Then on Sept. 5, Ogle’s GPS device showed he was near a playground in Daly City and he admitted to being within less than a 100 yards of a playground, the court records said.
Conviction came after guilty plea to sex crimes
Ogle’s initial conviction in 2008 came after he pleaded guilty to a laundry list of sexual crimes.
According to testimony at his sentencing in 2008, a video tape was seized showing about 19 girls, aged 16 to 19, in different stages of undressing in north Napa.
