The offense involved the offender exposing himself to an adult male stranger at a park. Possessing Matter with sexual conduct of person under 14 (1995).

COMMUNITY NOTIFICATION

           The Faulkner County Sheriff’s Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Section 13 of Act 989 of 1997, the Sex and Child Offender Registration Act and the community notification guidelines promulgated by the Commission on Abuse, which authorizes Law Enforcement Agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release.  Such information will enhance public safety and protection.

      The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of an offense that requires registration with the Arkansas Crime Information Center.  Further, his/her previous criminal history places him/her in a classification level that reflects the potential to re-offend.

         This Offender has advised the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Department that he/she will be living in the location listed in this report.  HE/SHE IS NOT WANTED BY THE POLICE.  THE NOTIFICATION IS NOT INTENDED TO INCREASE FEAR; RATHER, IT IS OUR BELIEF THAT AN INFORMED PUBLIC IS A SAFER PUBLIC.

         The Faulkner County Sheriff’s Department has no legal authority to direct where a Sex Offender lives.  Unless court ordered restrictions exist, this Offender is free to live where he/she chooses.

         Sex Offenders have always lived in our communities, but it wasn’t until this passage of the Sex and Child Offender Registration Act that law enforcement even knew where they were living.  In many cases, law enforcement is now able to share that information with you.  CITIZEN ABUSE OF THIS INFORMATION TO THREATEN, INTIMIDATE OR HARASS REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.  Further, abuse could potentially end law enforcement’s ability to do community notification.  We believe the only person who wins if community notification ends is the Offender, since sex offenders derive their power through secrecy.
