RITZVILLE, WA - The Adams County Sheriff's Office wants to let the public know about a level three sex offender moving into the area.
71-year-old Eugene Roy Kliewer now lives on the zero block of East Weber Road in Ritzville.
Kliewer is 6'1" and 180 pounds. He has gray hair and blue eyes.
Kliewer was convicted of sexual interference in Canada in 2012. That charge is the equivalent of first degree child molestation in the United States.
Kliewer's victim was his 3-year-old step granddaughter. Kliewer was sentenced to a confinement term of 12 months and 3 of years community supervision.
Kliewer has refused to comply with the terms of his probation and has refused to enroll and participate in a Sex Offender Treatment Program as set forth by the Ontario Court of Justice.
Kliewer willingly fled Canada to avoid having to comply with the orders listed above. Kliewer is a US citizen and is not subject to deportation. Due to Kliewer's unwillingness to comply with his terms of sentencing as set forth by the Ontario Court of Justice, he is considered a high risk to re-offend.
