Reminder: Lynnwood Police to hold Public Meeting about sex offender on Wednesday

A Public Community Meeting about a sex offender, who said he is planning to move to Lynnwood, is set for 7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 8 in the Lynnwood Municipal Court, located on the second floor at 19321 44th Ave. W. in Lynnwood.

Christopher Lee Shelley has indicated he is moving to a residence in the 5500 block of 176th St. SW. in Lynnwood.

Shelley pled guilty to the crime of Rape of a Child second degree on Jan. 26, 2001 and was given a term of 111 months in prison. The victim of the crime was a 12-year-old girl. In March of 1995 Shelley was convicted of the crime of Rape of a Child first degree in Snohomish County Juvenile Court. The victims in this crime were 6 and 9 years of age. In April of 1995 Shelley was convicted of the crime of Assault fourth Degree with Sexual Motivation. The victims in this crime were two females, ages 14 and 15.. Shelley has prior convictions for the following crimes: Reckless Burning in 1994, Burglary second Degree and Failure to Register in 1995, and Residential Burglary in 1997. Shelley is no longer on supervision and his only requirement is to register his address.

Because of Shelley’s numerous convictions for sexual crimes, he has been classified as Level 3, which reflects the potential to re-offend. Shelley is not wanted by the police at this time.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and the Lynnwood Police Department have 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.
