WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KSDK) - A concerned parent contacted NewsChannel 5 about how close a registered sex offender lives to his daughter's school bus stop.
The father told us he was having no luck getting help on his own, so NewsChannel 5's Casey Nolen to Wentzville to see if there was anything that could be done.

Court records show the man who lives next to a bus stop on Hill Place has a couple of sex crime convictions, enough to get him sentenced to a total of 30 years back in the 1990s. The man is registered as a sex offender, but that is all he is required to do.
The school district says they check the sex offender registry a few times a year, but this man moved into the home over the summer, so he fell through the cracks.

To prevent children from boarding the school bus in front of his home, the district has agreed to add extra stops in other areas.
