Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery is notifying the public of a registered sex offender who is residing in the Clarkridge area. The sheriff says 64 year old Jeffrey John Harris, who lives at 257 Chriswood Drive, has not yet been assigned a risk level by the state Sex Offender Screening and Risk Management office.
According to the sheriff, Harris was convicted in June of 1999 on two counts of sexual assault on a child in Denver, Colorado where he was imprisoned for 15 years and ordered lifetime sex offender registration.
Sheriff Montgomery say Jeffrey John Harris is not wanted by law enforcement at this time and this notification is not intended to increase fear, but rather it is his belief that an informed public is a safer public. The sheriff says this information cannot be used to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders and citizen abuse will not be tolerated. Such abuse, he says, could potentially end law enforcement's ability to do community notification.
