Samuel Gutierrez, 28, registered level III sex offender
SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- Yakima Sheriff's deputies want to notify the public of a level III convicted sex offender who has registered within the county.
Samuel Gutierrez, 28, has moved to the 12,000 block of Van Belle Road in Sunnyside.
In 1995, Gutierrez was convicted of three counts first-degree child molestation in Yakima County Juvenile Court, and in 1996, he was convicted of first-degree child rape in Skamania County Superior Court, and third-degree child rape in Yakima County Superior Court.
Gutierrez is not wanted at this time, but does pose a high risk to re-offend.
The Yakima County Sheriff's Office has no legal authority to direct where a sex offender may or may not live. Unless court ordered restrictions exist, this offender is constitutionally free to live wherever he or she chooses.
