Former krewe king arrested a second time
HOUMA - Terrebonne Parish sheriff's deputies say the former Mardi Gras krewe king arrested Monday for allegedly violating a sex offender law has been arrested a second time for using a social networking business site.
The Courier reports deputies found 34-year-old Glynn Matherne had a LinkedIn profile that included his photo and a brief mention of his position at the Houston-based company.
Capt. Dawn Foret said Wednesday it's a violation for sex offenders to have social media accounts.
Matherne was arrested Monday for allegedly wearing a mask in last year's Krewe of Mardi Gras parade, which is considered a violation of the sex offender law.
He was forced to resign as king Tuesday.
Matherne has been a registered sex offender since 2003 after being convicted of carnal knowledge of a juvenile.
