PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- A Port St. Lucie man is accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill a convicted sex offender he said he did not want hanging around his daughter, police said.

According to a police report, Dennie Wayne Dobbins, 36, was looking to find someone willing to kill James Lee Manack for $500. Dobbins allegedly told a police informer in prison that Manack was a pedophile and was hanging out with his pregnant daughter, police said.

Dobbins was placed in jail on July 23 on drunken driving and battery charges.

According to State records, Manack is listed as a sexual offender after serving two years in prison for sexual assault on a child under 16.

Police said Dobbins told the informer that he would pay the hit man when he got out of prison. According to the police report, Dobbins said that if the hitman did not do it, he would kill Manack when he got out. Dobbins told the informer that he would know if the hit man did it when he read the obituaries in the paper the next day, police said.
