TROY, Ohio (WDTN) – A sex offender was back in court Monday on new charges.

Andrew Mathias is now charged with importuning and violating parole.

He was arrested Friday, accused of following two teenage girls and asking one for sex. The girls sought refuge at the Miami County Library only blocks from the jail where Mathias served time.

The reported incident happened only hours after his release from jail.

Mathias was charged in 2011 and labeled a tier one sex offender.
