Arizona state law (ARS 13-3825, Comm-unity Notification of Sex Offenders law) requires city and county law enforcement agencies to notify the community when certain sex offenders move into their local jurisdictions. This notification is required when sex offenders are released from the Arizona State Prison, county jail or who relocate from another city or state.

Jacques R. Negrette, 48, was convicted out of Graham County Superior Court of sexual conduct with a minor, a 15-year-old female in 1989. He now resides at 169 W. 800 South, Pima, AZ 85543. He is caucasian, 6 feet, 3 inches tall, weighs 200 pounds, has brown hair and hazel eyes.

He is not wanted by any law enforcement agency at this time.

Level 3 offenders present a high risk to the community. They have a history of predatory sex crimes, have been convicted of a dangerous crime or are diagnosed as serial predators.

The Pima Police Department has no legal authority to direct where a sex offender may or may not live. Unless court-ordered restrictions exist, this offender is constitutionally free to live wherever he chooses.

Abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass sex offenders is prohibited by law and will not be tolerated. Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but because of Megan's Law, law enforcement is now able to share that information with the public.

This notification is not intended to increase fear. Rather, it is believed that an informed public is a safer public.

Anyone with information regarding current criminal activity involving the above individual may call 485-9454. For questions about this notification call 428-CRIME and leave a message.
