The Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public that a Level 2 (moderate risk to re-offend with community notification justified) Registered Sex Offender is now residing in Baxter County.
NAME: BRANDON HUNT
DATE OF BIRTH: 03/04/1983
HOME ADDRESS: 4697 CR 36
Mountain Home, Arkansas 72653
The offender was convicted of Sexual Assault of a Child in the Second Degree on 05/21/2002. Documentation indicates this offense involved the offender engaging in sexual contact with a 12-year-old female. The offender was just released from the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. Community notification is justified due to the young age of the victim at the time the crime was committed.
This person is not wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is our belief that 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.
