Brionna Lee Propst, aka Brionna Zybrina Propst, 21, of Flanders Drive, Mooresville.

A registered sex offender residing in Mooresville was recently arrested for entering a location occupied by minors, arrest warrants indicated.

Brionna Lee Propst, aka Brionna Zybrina Propst, was arrested Friday after the Community Corrections Division of the North Carolina Department of Public Safety notified the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office she disregarded policies regarding registered sex offenders.

On Friday, Propst, 21, reportedly visited the Iredell County Public Library in Statesville while minors were present, warrants stated. Arrest reports show she was charged with sex offender at/near child premises.

She was also charged under a local statute that bans sex offenders from city parks, greenways and other public properties. Warrants said Propst entered the parking lot of Harris Park in Statesville.

Propst, of Flanders Drive, received a $15,000 secured bond from a magistrate. She is scheduled to appear in court July 17.

The charges follow a sexual assault conviction more than two years ago.

On Nov. 9, 2016, Propst, 18, pleaded guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor and sexual battery in Iredell County Superior Court. The Record & Landmark reported at the time she was given a suspended sentence of 45 days, along with 12 months of supervised probation, for the delinquency conviction and a 60-day suspended sentence and 12 months supervised probation for sexual battery.

Propst was initially charged in May 2016 with statutory rape/sex offense with a child and contributing to the delinquency of minor. The investigation began when the child’s parents reported Propst in April 2016, said Statesville Police Department Capt. D.B Johnson. Authorities arrested Propst after they spoke with the child at the Dove House Children’s Advocacy Center.

State records show that Propst has also been convicted of failure to register as a sex offender, failure to notify change of address as a sex offender and post release revocation.
