Phoenix police have arrested a convicted sex offender for trying to lure a 13-year old girl.

William McEnany just finished a ten years in prison sentence for doing the same thing back in 2005.

Court documents indicate police working the 2005 case warned McEnany was an at-risk offender and was not going through any type of treatment.

Police started monitoring him after they lost track of him last fall. According to court records, he failed to register as a sex offender at a Phoenix home near 35th Avenue and Glendale.

McEnany admitted to police that he didn’t register at his new address because he didn’t have the money to get a new driver’s license.

Police found he had a fake Facebook page where he posed as a 16-year-old boy to lure girls.

Police say McEnany started talking online with a 13-year-old in June. They found inappropriate photographs of the teen on his computer.

At that time, he had only been out of prison for two months

McEnany told police he is an undiagnosed hebephiliac which means he is sexually attracted to young girls between the ages of 11 and 14.

Psychiatrist Michael Yasinski says the laws doesn’t require at-risk offenders who are hebephiliacs to get mandatory treatment

Because what they suffer from isn't considered a disorder clinically or under the law. Yasinski says it is frustrating that the law isn’t forcing people to get help because it would protect the victims they are targeting.

"These type of people are going to re-offend and we lack the legal teeth to do anything about it," said Yasinski.

McEnany bonded out of jail and is back on the streets.
