Stephen Rey Groat


     The Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public that a rural Mountain Home man who has previously registered as an unassessed Sex Offender at the Sheriff’s Office has now been assigned a community risk assessment classification by the Sex Offender Screening and Risk Management Board. He has now been assessed as a Level 3 Offender (high risk to re-offend).


NAME:                       STEPHEN REY GROAT


DATE OF BIRTH:   12/15/1970


HOME ADDRESS:  58 Woodsong Terrace

                                    Mountain Home, Arkansas 72653                             


     The offender was convicted on August 8, 1992 of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault in Lake County, Illinois. The victim was an 11 year old female.


     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.
