The Graham County Sheriff’s Office is releasing the following information pursuant to ARS 13-3825, the Community Notification on Sex Offenders Law.

Notification must be made when certain sex offenders are released from the Arizona State Prison, released from a county jail, or who relocate from another city or state.

It is the responsibility of the chief law enforcement officer having jurisdiction where the offenders intend to reside to inform the community.

The persons who appear in this notification have been convicted of sex offenses, which allows the Graham County Sheriff’s Office to make community notification. They are not wanted by the Graham County Sheriff’s Office or any other law enforcement agency at this time.

Graham County Sheriff’s Office has no legal authority to direct where a sex offender may or may not live. Unless court-ordered restrictions exist, offenders are constitutionally free to live wherever they choose.

Community Notification is a sex offender law designed to make our community an informed and safer community. Citizen(s) who use this information to threaten, intimidate, harass or cause any harm to these individuals will not be tolerated and are subject to charges being filed against anyone violating the law.
