Henderson County deputies said a registered sex offender was taken into custody for operating a social media account.

On May 24, deputies said registered sex offender Christopher Michael Letchworth, 24, of Hendersonville, was taken into custody by the Madison County Sheriff's Office on an outstanding warrant from Henderson County for felony sex offender use of social media.

Deputies said Letchworth created and maintained a personal social media account on Facebook under the name "Jayden Michael." Registered sex offenders like Letchworth are prohibited from creating or maintaining accounts on social media websites that allow minors to become members.
