Sex Offenders on Halloween
Wilkerson, who was labeled a sex offender over 30 years ago said the children's parents were there to supervise and that he was just spending time with his family.
Wilerkson claimed he did not know about the Department of Corrections' new Halloween rules until afterwards.
"The offender says he did not get the directive in his mailbox until the day after Halloween. We're investigating that. We're trying to determine why did everybody else get it and he not get it, if that's the case. We're trying to verify it," said Brian Hauswirth who is with the Missouri Department of Corrections.
The Department of Corrections said they are investigating Wilkerson's claim as well as ways to make sure sex offenders know when new rules affect them.
Wilkerson's neighbors said they are upset that he is in the neighborhood. They said law enforcement officials never followed through when he is in the wrong.
"If there is any type of concerns the citizens have our phones are usually ringing off the hook with a lot of questions and stuff, and we haven't received any phone calls on any of it," said Auxvasse City Clerk Missy Hooks.
Wilkerson declined to comment today. He said, "I don't want to be judged."
No charges have been filed.
