PCSO issues sex offender notification

SHURTER, DUANE.jpg

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office has issued a sex offender notification for the San Manuel area.

Duane Eugene Shurter, 34, who resides in the 600 block of Vista Sierra, San Manuel, has been classified as a level two sex offender. He is 6 feet, 1 inch tall, 330 pounds with green eyes and brown hair. He was convicted in 1998 of attempted molestation of a child and in 2003 of sexual conduct with a minor.

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office is releasing the above information pursuant to A.R.S. 13-3825, the Community Notification on Sex Offender Law. The offender in this publication is living in San Manuel, Arizona. Notification must be made when certain sex offenders are released from the Arizona State Prison, accepted under an interstate compact or released from the county jail back into the community. Offenders are categorized into three levels: Level One (low risk to the community), Level Two (intermediate risk to the community), and Level Three (high risk to the community).

The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense, which allows for community notification. He is not wanted by the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office at this time.

This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is our belief that an informed community is a safer community. The Pinal 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 chooses. Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate, or harass sex offenders will not be tolerated. Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but because of Megan’s Law, law enforcement is now able to share this information with you.

Police caution that any use of this information to threaten, intimidate, harass or create an act against another person will result in prosecution.
