A sex offender is behind bars without bond for violating a protection order against his estranged wife and co-defendant in a Plymouth prostitution case, police said.
David Endicott, 55, was arrested by Huron County sheriff's deputies June 19, after Endicott's estranged wife, Xiao Min Feng, allegedly received a letter from him at her Shelby Street address. The note requested some of his belongings, according to a Sandusky police report.
Endicott was charged a first-degree misdemeanor protection order violation and taken to the Erie County jail for sending the correspondence.
This incident marked Endicott's second Erie County legal issue in six months: on Feb. 10, Feng received three harassing phone calls, during which Endicott allegedly threatened to kill her if she didn't show up at trial and lie to protect him.
Back in September, Plymouth police, Huron County deputies and state investigators raided the couple's home. They charged Feng with prostitution and Endicott with complicity to prostitution for a massage parlor they were allegedly operating there.
Endicott ran into trouble again a few days following the Plymouth raid, after he allegedly moved to Sandusky without updating his sex offender registration with Erie and Huron county deputies.
In 2003, Endicott was convicted in South Carolina for committing or attempting a lewd act on a child under the age of 16, and has since been required to register as a sex offender.
