SHERIFF'S OFFICE REGISTERS NEW SEX OFFENDER
The Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public that a Level 2 (moderate risk to re-offend with community notification justified) Sex Offender has registered with the Sheriff’s Office and is residing in Baxter County.
NAME: MICHAEL EVAN CAGLE
DATE OF BIRTH: 02/27/1990
ADDRESS: 50 Monarch Ln.
Mountain Home, Arkansas 72653
The offender was convicted of Sexual Assault in the Second Degree on April 18, 2012. The offense involved the offender going to pick up a 15-year-old acquaintance and her 13-year-old female friend who was staying with her. The girls consumed alcohol, and the offender engaged in sexual contact with the 13-year-old victim. Community notification is justified due to 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.
