Gregory Davis, 58, was arrested at a Pittsburgh homeless camp on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019. He had been convicted of child pornography charges in South Dakota and violated his parole requirements there.

Deputy sheriffs nabbed a man at a Pittsburgh homeless camp who had been convicted of child pornography charges in South Dakota and violated his parole requirements there, the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Deputies received information that Gregory Davis, 58, who was born in Pittsburgh and lived in Sioux Falls, S.D., was staying at a city homeless camp. They found him under the Liberty Bridge in the South Side after visiting several sites.

Davis was convicted in Davison County, S.D., on charges of possession, manufacture and distribution of child pornography, forgery and grand theft and received a 20-year prison sentence.

He was released on parole in April and was required to register as a sexual offender under Megan’s Law, but absconded in October.

Deputies arrested him without incident and charged him with being a fugitive. He is being held in the Allegheny County Jail awaiting extradition to South Dakota.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
