Michael Anthony Boutwell

     The Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public that a Level 2 (moderate risk to re-offend with community notification justified) Registered Sex Offender has moved to a new address in Baxter County. 

NAME:                       MICHAEL ANTHONY BOUTWELL

ATE OF BIRTH:   01/06/1959 

OLD ADDRESS:      7630 Highway 5 North
                                   Mountain Home, Arkansas 72653

NEW ADDRESS:     3551 Highway 62 West, Apt. B
                                    Mountain Home, Arkansas 72653 

     The offender was convicted of Sexual Assault of Child under 13 year of age, First Degree, on 12/07/1998.  This offense involved the offender engaging in sexual contact with a 12 year old female who was babysitting his children at home.  Community notification is justified because of the young age of the victim at the time the offense 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.
