Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery is notifying the public a Level 3 sex offender (high risk to re-offend) has been released from the Arkansas Department of Correction. Sheriff Montgomery says 60-year-old Chris A. Gladney has registered with the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office and is homeless.

Gladney was convicted of two counts of sexual indecency with a child in June 2010. The offense involved Gladney exposing himself to a number of other people outside their home.

Gladney is not wanted by law enforcement at this time. Montgomery says this notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is his 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.
