Sex offender moves to area from out of state

Photo: Bailey Lynn FrieseBaxter County Sheriff John Montgomery is notifying the public a new sex offender has registered with his office after moving to the area from out of state.

Sheriff Montgomery says 63-year-old Bailey Lynn Friese has located to 3262 Buford Cutoff in Mountain Home.

Documentation indicates Friese was convicted of a felony charge of solicitation of a minor in Pennington County, South Dakota, in 2015 and ordered to register as a sex offender. Information indicates the victim in this offense was a 12-year-old girl. Friese was also previously registered in Teton County, Wyoming, in 2016, prior to moving to Arkansas.

Friese has not yet been assigned a Risk Level by the Sex Offender Community Notification Assessment.

Friese 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.
