PUBLIC NOTICE - REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER RESIDING IN LAKEVIEW AREA
The Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public that a Level 2 Registered Sex Offender (Moderate Risk to re-offend) is now residing in Baxter County.
NAME: KEVIN WAYNE BAKER
DATE OF BIRTH: 05/20/1966
HOME ADDRESS: 149 CR 947
Lakeview, Arkansas 72642
The offender was convicted of Sexual Assault of a Child, 2nd Degree (2 counts) on 10/09/2002. This offense involved the offender engaging in sexual contact with a female from the ages of 12 – 15 and sexual contact with a 13 year old male. Community notification is justified due to the young ages of the victims at the time the crimes were committed.
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.
