New sex offender residing in Mountain Home


Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery is notifying the public a new sex offender has registered with his Office.

Sheriff Montgomery says 53-year-old James Alan Cech is residing at 138 Featherknob Lane in Mountain Home.

Cech was arrested in 1994 in LaGrange, Illinois for the crime of aggravated criminal sexual assault and convicted in 1995. He was also arrested in 1998 in Des Plaines, Illinois for failing to register as a sex offender. Available documentation does not provide specific information or details about these crimes.

Cech has not yet been assigned a risk level by the Sex Offender Community Notification Assessment.

Cech 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.
