Holloway initially registered in Cherokee County in March of 2013. Soon after registering with the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office Holloway moved to Georgia.

On July 11, 2014 Holloway returned to the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and indicated that he was moving to an address in Andrews, North Carolina. Upon checking the distances to protected properties in the area Holloway was advised that he could not move to that residence.

On July 24th, 2014 an Officer with the Andrews Police Department, along with deputies with the Uniformed Services Division of the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office went to two different addresses in Andrews, both of which were within 1,000 feet of protected properties. Upon checking the second residence Holloway was found hiding in a back bedroom.

Holloway was arrested and taken to the Cherokee County Detention Center where he is currently incarcerated on a $10,000.00 secure bond for Failing to Notify of an Address Change and Living within 1,000.00 feet of a Protected Property. Holloway is scheduled to appear in Cherokee County District Court on August 05, 2014.

Sheriff Keith Lovin stated “Cherokee County has currently has 71 registered sex offenders, and over 90 percent offended against a child.
