A convicted sex offender accused of running a massage parlor and prostitution house in Plymouth now reportedly has threatened to kill his estranged wife if she didn't lie for him at trial.

David W. Endicott, 55, of 132 W. Broadway St., Plymouth, is being held without bond at the Erie County Jail.

On Feb. 10, Endicott's estranged wife, Xiaomin M. Feng, 43, filed a complaint with the Sandusky Police Department in which she alleged Endicott made three harassing phone calls to her. According to the police report, the man reportedly threatened to kill her if she didn't come to a trial and didn't lie to protect him.

Erie County Common Pleas Judge Roger Binnette granted a protection order which Feng filed Feb. 10 against Endicott. Judicial administrator Lori Rickenbaugh told the Sandusky Register the order was based on the suspected threats and physical abuse reportedly sustained by Feng.

No court dates have been set.

Endicott and his estranged wife were charged in connection with an Aug. 28 raid at their home at the time in Plymouth. The Plymouth Police Department, Huron and Richland county sheriff's offices, Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, ATF and ICE were involved in using a search warrant.

Feng was charged with two counts of prostitution while Endicott faced two charges of complicity to prostitution. According to Norwalk Municipal Court records, prosecutors later filed a motion saying "the state of Ohio is unable to prosecute (the cases) based on the charge filed" and the third-degree misdemeanors were dismissed. Plymouth Law Director John Studenmund couldn't be reached for comment.

Each defendant posted bond shortly after the charges were filed and were released from the Huron County Jail.

Authorities in Erie County then alleged Endicott failed to register his address as a sex offender.

In 2003 in South Carolina, Endicott was convicted of committing or attempting to commit a lewd act upon a child under the age of 16. Court records indicate the victim was a girl. Endicott was sentenced to four years in prison and five years of probation.

Classified as a sex predator, Endicott must register his address every 90 days for the rest of his life.

Huron County Sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Schaffer said Endicott had been registering regularly with her as of mid-September.

"He didn't come to me from the other county (in South Carolina)," Schaffer said.

After a news story ran about the prostitution case, residents in the 600 block of Shelby Street in Sandusky asked Erie County sheriff's deputies why Endicott was living in their neighborhood. Capt. Steve Westcott, who oversees sex offender registration, investigated the complaints. Westcott has said he spoke to neighbors who reported Endicott lived on Shelby Street for about a month and a half.

"He's never registered with us," Chief Deputy Jared Oliver told the Reflector in the fall.

Deputies obtained a warrant to arrest Endicott. He was booked into the Erie County Jail about 7:10 p.m. Sept. 16. He later posted bond.

On Friday, Endicott was booked into jail again. He is charged with failure to verify, a fourth-degree felony, which is punishable by six to 18 months in prison.

My wife and I have lived in the plymouth neighborhood where this occured and raised our two children here for over 20 years and never had cause to feel unsafe until these people moved in. We will not even let our grandchildren out to play when they visit. I am fortunate enough to live a few houses away but I can only imagine what the families living to either side have to endure. These people are an affliction on good law abiding citizens who wake up and go to work and make an honest living and live decent lives. These people should not be allowed to live within city limits. And for those who say he still has rights, try living in the neighborhood and ask yourself if you would let your children run and play outside.

Presto

I live in the neighborhood as well and I feel exactly like you do...
I am close enough to see the comings and goings as well and in addition to all the stuff in this news story which is all true from what i've seen--there are cars going in and out of HIS GARAGE all hours of the night! They pull into his drive and his garage door magically opens--they pull in and garage door closes...This has been going on nonstop since the big "bust" in August--WHATS going on here?? Why would a person use their garage as a drive thru at night? CREEPY! Do you see this going on at night? You are SO smart to keep your young children INSIDE! WHY DOESNT SOMEONE DO SOMETHING?????? WHY WERE PROSTITUTION CHARGES DROPPED??? Wasting our tax money DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!

If he has threatened to kill his wife --then why is he charged with failure to verify ? WTH is this supposed to mean? Folks are allowed to walk around and threaten to kill family members yet they're charged with 4th degree felony? this is sickening omg does someone have to DIE for someone(s) to CARE???? (apparently omg)
