Police: Warren sex offender leaves toddler home alone to get high

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - 31-year-old Scotty Langham is being held in the Trumbull County Jail without bond on charges of child endangering and failing to register as a sex offender.

Warren police and members of the U.S. Marshals Task Force went to a home on Highland Avenue Tuesday to arrest Langham for failure to fulfill a requirement that he report his address on a sex offender registry.

Langham wasn't there, but authorities say that his 16-month-old daughter had been left in the home unattended for two hours.

The mother of the child came home to care for her daughter, and called police when Langham returned to the house.

According to the report filed by city police, Langham was not at all concerned for his daughter's well being and told officers that he left to "get his smoke on" before being arrested.

Langham pleaded not guilty before a judge in Warren Municipal Court.

According to court records, Langham has been required to register as a sex offender since he was convicted to sexual imposition in 2009.
