A registered sex offender is facing several charges after deputies said he was found on school premises picking up his girlfriend's daughter, according to Henderson County deputies.

Chief Deputy Frank Stout said 30-year-old Stephen Carl Harner, of East Flat Rock, has been arrested three times this month on multiple offences, including being a sex offender on school premises without authorization.

According to Stout, Harner was first arrested on Jan. 10 for failing to notify the sex offender registry of an address change and driving with a revoked license.

On Jan. 15, Harner was arrested again and charged with being a sex offender on school premises without authorization, Stout said.

Harner was arrested a third time in January on the Tuesday after a school resource officer recognized him picking up his daughters girlfriend, according to Stout. He was charged a second time with the same offense and given a $16,000 bond, Stout said.

Stout said Harner is out on bond pending his next court appearance.
