Registered Sex Offender has now been assigned risk assessment level
William Richard Tallerdy
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 2 (moderate risk to re-offend with community notification justified).
NAME: WILLIAM RICHARD TALLERDY
DATE OF BIRTH: 03/27/1984
HOME ADDRESS: 390 Surrey Dr.
Lakeview, Arkansas 72642
The offender was convicted of Sexual Assault in the Third Degree (2 counts) on 03/09/2007. This offense involved the then 21-year-old offender engaging in sexual contact with a 14-year-old female acquaintance. Community notification is justified due to the young age of the victim at the time the crime 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.
