ROBINWOOD, Ala. – A neighbor in Alabama has put up a large billboard to try to get a sex offender living across the street to move. reported that Jeb Lessley and his wife Jessica put up a billboard in their front yard warning the community about Raymond Martin.

Martin was arrested in 2012 on charges of having sex with a 15-year-old girl. He was 24 at the time.

Jeb and Jessica Lessley said they have lived in their home for 11 years and never had any problems until Martin moved in. They claim that Martin terrorizes the neighborhood.

Martin lives with his mother, who said the family across the street is the problem. Martin’s mother said she will “see them in hell” before they move.

"It's just a nightmare,'' Lessley said, according to the paper.
