Man buys billboard publicizing sex offender’s crimes

ROBINWOOD, Ala. — An Alabama man is putting pressure on a sex offender neighbor to move.

Jeb Lessley purchased a billboard featuring Raymond Martin’s mugshot, his address and the charges against him, including second degree rape and sodomy for a 2013 conviction involving an underage girl.

The intent is to call out the registered sex offender living nearby. Lessley had the billboard made for about $160.

Martin and his family say the billboard is unfair and that his crimes don’t need to be broadcast.

Martin lives across the street from the sign.
