Cleveland Police arrest sex offender

Cleveland, TN (WDEF) – A convicted sex offender got a surprise when he drove to Cleveland Wednesday.

Cleveland Police say 47-year-old Jonathan Francis of Hixson thought he was going to have sex with a 13 year old boy, but that’s not who greeted him.

He gave officers the name Stacy Grimsley; an alias he has used before.

Police Detective and Internet Crimes Against Children Investigator Cody Hinson met Francis, who was arrested and his truck searched.

Francis is held without bond in the Bradley County Jail.

He’s charged with sexual exploitation of a minor.

Under the TBI’s Sex Offender Register he is listed as Grimsley, but Cleveland Police arrested him as Francis which was on his license.
