Sex offender faces more prison time for violations

Joshua Slone

PIKEVILLE, Ky. — A convicted sex offender who reportedly told state troopers that he wanted to go back to prison during an alleged drunken rampage, may get his wish.

38-year-old Joshua Slone, of Dema, was arrested November 2nd, for allegedly breaking items in his father’s home while highly intoxicated.

But that arrest, and his alleged use of alcohol, violate the terms of his release from prison.

Slone was convicted of receiving child pornography in 2009 and was released from prison this past April.

Now, the criminal charges in Knott County are the least of his concern.

Those misdemeanors could mean he is sent back to prison for additional time.
