Level 2 sex offender registers in Baxter County

The Baxter County Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public of a level 2 sex offender, someone who is a moderate risk with community notification justified, has registered with the department.

Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery says 46-year-old Jeremy Butcher has registered as homeless.

Montgomery states Butcher received a deferred adjudication for Indecency with a Child in the Second Degree on Sept. 14, 2006. The offense involved him engaging in sexual contact with one or more small children.

Butcher 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 provide community notification.
