New sex offender registers with sheriff’s office


The Baxter County Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public a new sex offender, 41-year-old Richard Pullen, has registered with the sheriff’s office.

Pullen resides at 23 Forrest Park Road in Mountain Home.

According to documentation, Pullen was arrested in 1996 in Somervell County, Texas for two counts of sexual assault on a child and for four counts of indecency with a child involving sexual contact. He was subsequently convicted of those charges. Available documentation does not provide specific details of the crimes. Pullen was also arrested in 2014 for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements, again in Somervell County, Texas.

Pullen has not yet been assigned a risk level by the Sex Offender Community Notification Assessment (SOCNA).

Pullen is not wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is the sheriff's belief an informed public is a safer public. This information cannot be used to threaten, intimidate, or harass Registered Sex Offenders. Citizen abuse will not be tolerated. Such abuse could potentially end law enforcement’s ability to do community notification.
