Registered sex offender Rodger D. Golden is living within 1,000 feet of Timberlane Elementary at 2131 Timber Lane, according to a civil complaint filed in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court.

Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck filed the complaint Oct. 14, a month after a sheriff’s office deputy served Golden, 38, with a notice at 2251 Otello Ave. in Dayton.

A Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office sergeant said on Wednesday that Golden was still living at the residence and that the case has been turned over to prosecutors.

Golden was convicted in 2011 and sentenced to nine months in prison for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, a fourth-degree felony.

Golden originally was sentenced to five years’ community control by Judge Timothy O’Connell. But court records show Golden’s probation was revoked, and he was sentenced to prison three months after his original sentence.

Heck’s complaint is asking Judge Mary Wiseman for a permanent injunction to compel Golden to move to another residence that is not within 1,000 feet of a school.
