A 71-year-old convicted sex offender was arrested Wednesday morning for violating the Sex Offender Notification and Registration Act, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office reports.

Shortly after 7 a.m., the Sex Offender Unit and Special Investigations Units executed a search warrant at a home in the 1700 block of Pleasant Grove Road. Following a search, agents arrested Franklin Deleanoir McGhee without incident for failing to register as a sex offender.

McGhee was convicted in 1998 of two separate counts of incest. Upon his release from prison, he was required to register as sex offender.

On May 17, investigators with the Bessemer Police Department obtained warrants for his arrest on charges of rape and incest.

McGhee is currently being held in the Jefferson County Jail on charges of rape, incest and violation of the Sex Offender Notification and Registration Act. His bond is set at $415,000.
