The Baxter County Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public of a registered sex offender relocating to Lakeview. According to Sheriff John Montgomery, 39-year-old James Drewery is residing at 6316 Arkansas Highway 178 West, #3.

Drewery has not be assigned a risk level by the Sex Offender Community Notification Assessment. He was sentenced to 10 years in the Missouri Department of Corrections after being convicted of first-degree statutory rape in Oregon County in September 2002. Records indicate the offense involved a victim less than 14 years of age.

Drewery 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.
