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