Laurel Sex Offender Sentenced To 150 Months In Prison

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE, Md. - An already once convicted sex offender, has been sentenced again. Wednesday, in Baltimore, Scott Odham, 49, of Laurel, DE, was sentenced to 150 months in prison, followed by a lifetime supervised release, along with having to register as a sex offender. Odham was previously convicted in Carroll County for child abuse and indecent exposure.

The newest conviction, of traveling across state lines to engage in sex with a minor stems from a plea agreement, saying Odham sent Facebook and Myspace messages to more than 50 high school and middle school girls, in Maryland.

In April 2011, Odham Facebook "friended" a 19-year-old woman from Princess Anne, the relationship became sexual. On April 22nd, 2011, a 14-year-old girl was staying at Odham's friend's home, during which time the two drank alcohol, and texted pictures of themselves in bathing suits to Odham. The next day, Odham, who knew the 14-year-old was at the home alone, drove to Princess Anne, where he engaged in sexually explicit conduct with the teen.

In June 2011, Odham sent the 14-year-old an inappropriate text, which was seen by her teacher, and reported to authorities. Subsequent interviews with the teen, revealed to authorities that Odham told the girl that he would pay her to take off her clothes and watch porn with him, she declined, and he grabbed her by the hair and demanded oral sex.

During a search of Odham's home, pornographic images were found on his phone, including those of both the 19-year-old and 14-year-old.
