SEX OFFENDER REGISTERS WITH SHERIFF'S OFFICE
The Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public that a Level 2 Sex Offender (moderate risk to re-offend with community notification justified) has registered with the Sheriff’s Office and is now residing in Baxter County.
NAME: JOEL CAMPBELL
DATE OF BIRTH: 05/19/1986
HOME ADDRESS: 195 Buzzard Roost Cutoff (temporary address)
Mountain Home, Arkansas 72653
The offender was convicted of Sexual Assault in the First Degree (2 counts) on 12/04/2006. Documentation indicates this offense involved the offender engaging in sexual contact with a 9 – 10 year old female. Community notification is justified due to the young age of the victim at the time the offenses occurred.
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.
