A convicted sex offender with a lengthy criminal history in Oregon is accused of molesting a Post Falls girl.

Roy L. Goldsborough, 51, is in Kootenai County Jail on $500,000 for one charge of lewd conduct with a minor.

He’s accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-girl who told her mother about the alleged abuse last week.

Post Falls police recorded a phone call between the girl and Goldsborough in which he confessed to the abuse, according to court documents.

Goldsborough was arrested in the WalMart parking lot last Wednesday, where police said he appeared to be trying to fix a flat tire.

Goldsborough moved to Post Falls about two months ago. His criminal history in Oregon includes several sex abuse convictions, police said.
