He was a registered sex offender at the time of the offense. In fact, McNair was convicted of attempted criminal sexual assault in Illinois in 1999, which required him to register as a sex offender.

According to the Illinois State Police website, McNair was 18 at the time of the offense and the victim was 12 years old.

A national initiative called Project Safe Childhood, which aims to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse was launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. The case against McNair was brought forward by Project Safe Childhood.
