Sex Offender List
The individuals listed in the downloadable list below have served their sentences, and unless they are non-compliant, are not wanted by the King County Sheriff's office. Not all offenders will re-offend. The community's knowledge of a potential risk is vital in avoiding situations that allow past offenders easy access to potential victims. Nearly 80% of all sex crimes are committed by someone known to the victim.
It is believed that sex offenders are less likely to re-offend if they live and work in a harassment-free environment. It is against the law to use this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders in any way.
Level 3 sex offenders have the greatest risk to re-offend. An offender who is non-compliant and/or transient also has a greater risk to re-offend.
The Seattle Police Department Sex Offender Detectives check on offenders within the city limits every 3 months to verify their place of residence.
The King County Sheriff's office warns that "children are particularly vulnerable to offenders." However, children are most often molested by someone they or their parents know. Open communication is essential to protecting your child; your child should feel comfortable discussing sensitive matters with you. Teach children that they should not be asked to touch or consent to be touched by anyone in the areas of the body that are covered by a bathing suit. Children should also be taught to tell you immediately if inappropriate touching is attempted or has occurred.
If a picture is available of an offender living near your home, show it to your family. While avoiding scary/graphic details, tell your children that this person has hurt someone before and warn them to stay away from this individual. Tell them to NEVER accept a ride from this person; DO NOT go into that person's yard or home; and TELL parents/trusted adults if this person offers you toys, money or gifts. See "Stranger Danger" Rules for further information.
If you believe an offender is coming into contact with children, do not confront the individual. Contact the King County Sheriff's office with your suspicions at 206.263.2120 or email@example.com
NOTE: We have included individuals on the list below that have recently lived in South Seattle or live near the South Precinct and have offenses involving children.
