ALERT: Authorities Want You To Know About This Transient Level 2 Sex Offender
PRESS RELEASE FROM THE STEVENS COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: The Stevens County Sheriff's Office wants all of you to know about Terry L. Thomas, he's level 2 sex offender that is living the transient lifestyle. Authorities are releasing the following
information pursuant to RCW 4.24.550, which authorizes law enforcement agencies
to inform the public of a sex offenders release when, in the discretion of the
agency, the release of information will enhance public safety and protection.
The individual who
appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense that requires
registration with the Stevens County Sheriff's Office.
TERRY THOMAS IS NOT WANTED BY THE POLICE AT THIS TIME. THIS NOTIFICATION IS NOT INTENDED TO
INCREASE FEAR. RATHER, IT IS OUR BELIEF
THAT AN INFORMED PUBLIC IS A SAFER PUBLIC.
The Stevens County Sheriff's Office
has no legal authority to direct where a sex offender may or may not live. Unless court ordered restrictions exist,
offenders are constitutionally free to live wherever they choose.
Sex offenders have always lived in our
communities. It wasn't until passage of
the Community Protection Act of 1990 (which mandates sex offender registration)
that law enforcement knew where sex offenders were living. Use of this information to threaten,
intimidate or harass registered sex offenders is unlawful.
