On May 25, a probation officer discovered a set of children’s bicycles during a visit to D’Jun Edward Wilson’s home at 3075 17th Ave. S, according to an arrest report.

ST. PETERSBURG — A registered sexual predator who was released from prison last year is back in jail after a probation officer found that children had visited his St. Petersburg home, authorities said.

D'Jun Edward Wilson, 23, was barred from having any contact with children after his release from state prison in March 2012. He spent nearly four years behind bars for a series of 2008 crimes that included sexual battery on a child and lewd and lascivious molestation, according to the Department of Corrections. He was serving 10 years of probation.

On May 25, a probation officer discovered a set of children's bicycles during a visit to Wilson's home at 3075 17th Ave. S, according to an arrest report. During questioning, Wilson said children had visited his home that day.

In the same visit, the probation officer found that Wilson also had Internet capability on his cellphone, which was prohibited as a condition of his probation, the report states.

Wilson was booked Tuesday in the Pinellas County Jail and held without bail.
