The Marion County Sheriff's Office is notifying the public of a registered sex offender now living in Northern Marion County. According to the sheriff's office, 41 year old Thomas Ray Wilson is residing at 14212 Highway 14 North in Yellville. Wilson was convicted in California in 1991 for lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14. Documentation indicates Wilson had sexual contact with an 11 year old boy and has acknowledged molesting at least 5 boys.
This person is not wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification, says the sheriff, is not intended to increase fear; rather it is his belief that 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.
