Is there a Sex Offender at-large in Your Neighborhood?

by Tina Johansson

Now that kids are home from school for the summer, take heed at this important message from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

“These at-large sex offenders could be someone you see in the neighborhood, someone working at your local convenience store, or someone you see at local events.” – Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran

The LCSO maintains a list of compliant and non-compliant sex offenders residing in Lake County; and it is available to the community on the LCSO website.

Registered sex offenders are required to comply with all registration requirements, which include physically appearing at their proper sheriff’s office or local police department for a weekly, quarterly, or yearly registration.

In addition to the physical registration requirements, the LCSO is responsible for checking the residential compliance of all sex offenders who establish residency in the jurisdiction of the sheriff’s office.  The residential compliance checks of registered sex offenders are conducted in accordance of the standards set forth by Illinois statute.

When sheriff’s detectives determine a sex offender is non-compliant, they seek an arrest warrant for the violation.

If you recognize any of these individuals, even if they are going by a different name, please call the Lake County Sheriff’s Office at 847-549-5200 or Lake County Crime Stoppers at 847-662-2222.  You may also send a tip via the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Website at: https://www.lakecountyil.gov/Sheriff

“These at-large sex offenders could be someone you see in the neighborhood, someone working at your local convenience store, or someone you see at local events.  A tip from the public may be all it takes to aid in their apprehension,” said Sheriff Mark Curran.

Undersheriff Ray Rose added, “Violating the sex offender registration act is a very serious matter, and a risk to public safety.  The Lake County Sheriff’s Office takes aggressive steps at working to locate all Lake County non-compliant sex offenders.”

The following registered sex offenders are non-compliant and have active arrest warrants.
