FAIRBURY (AP) - Police in southeast Nebraska are trying to track down a convicted sex offender suspected of sexually assaulting more children.
Police are looking for 30-year-old Billy Barritt, who has been charged in a warrant with first-degree sexual assault of a child and three counts of third-degree sexual assault of a child. Police say Barritt sexually assaulted multiple children under the age of 10 for more than a year. Authorities say that when Barritt learned of the investigation, he left his home in Fairbury. Barritt is currently on probation for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Police believe he could be armed. Anyone with information on Barritt is urged to contact the Fairbury Police Department or their local police. Barritt is also a convicted sex offender in Madison County, stemming from a 2006 case.  Barritt is described as 5’7” and weighs around 180 pounds with reddish-brown hair and glasses.  He was last known to be driving a black 1997 Chevy K1500 pickup with the Nebraska license plate number 33-2172.  Barritt is currently believed to be somewhere between Fairbury and Madison County. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Fairbury Police department or your local authorities.
