A Level 3 offender, as determined by the state, is one who is a high risk to re-offend.
He was convicted of sexual abuse 1st degree, a Class Y felony, in August, 1998 in Sharp County, Ark.
The community law enforcement and county sheriff’s office are aware that this person is in the community.
The Legislature passed legislation to assist efforts of local law enforcement agencies to protect their communities by requiring sex offenders to register with local law enforcement agencies as provided by the Sex Offender Registration Act.
Sex offender registry information shall not be used to retaliate against the registrants, their families, or their employers in any way. Vandalism, verbal or written threats of harm are illegal and will result in arrest and prosecution.
