SHERIFF'S OFFICE HAS REGISTERED ANOTHER SEX OFFENDER
The Sheriff's Office is notifying the public that a convicted sex offender has registered with the Sheriff's Office. He has been assessed as a Level 2 offender (moderate risk to re-offend with community notification justified).
NAME: STEVEN HECKETHORN
DATE OF BIRTH: 08/13/1966
HOME ADDRESS: 49 Cedar Hills Trail
Midway, AR 72651
The offender was convicted of the offense of Sexual Abuse of a Minor under 15 years of age in Maricopa County, Arizona on 06/16/1997. This involved the then 30 year old offender engaging in sexual contact with a then 13 year old acquaintance.
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.

Baxter County Sheriff
