AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va (WVIR) -

A convicted sex offender is accused of trying to lure a child with sweets.

According to the Augusta Commonwealth's Attorney, Ivan Smallwood tried to get a young boy into his van by offering him candy. The incident happened in Verona near Smallwood's mother's house.

Smallwood is now charged with attempted abduction. During a bond hearing Wednesday morning the judge denied Smallwood's request, saying he's a threat to the community.

In 1999, Smallwood was convicted of aggravated sexual battery and taking indecent liberties, and since then he has pleaded guilty to failing to register as a sex offender.
