     The Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public that a previously registered but un-assessed sex offender has now been assessed and assigned a risk level by the State of Arkansas.  The Sheriff’s Office has been informed that this offender has been designated as Risk Level 3 (high risk to re-offend). 

NAME:                       JOHN STEPHEN DEINZER

DATE OF BIRTH:   05/26/1941

     The offender was convicted of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse on 03/25/2003 involving ongoing sexual contact with a 13 to 16 year old male victim.   

     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.
