(Mountain Home) – The Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public that a Level 2 Registered Sex Offender (Moderate Risk to Re-offend with community notification justified) has changed addresses and moved to a different location in Baxter County.
NAME: STEPHEN MICHAEL KOTLOWSKI
DATE OF BIRTH: 02/15/1964
OLD ADDRESS: 106 CR 992, Mountain Home, Arkansas 72653
NEW ADDRESS: 10601 Highway 62 East, Apt. #1, Henderson, Arkansas 72544
The offender was convicted of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree on 01/21/1999. This offense involved the offender fondling the private areas of a 10 year old female. The victim reported that the molestation occurred over a 5 year period. Public Notification is justified due to the young age of the victim at the time the crime occurred. The offender was arrested earlier this week for Failure to Register.
This person is not wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public. This information cannot be used to threaten, intimidate, or harass Registered Sex Offenders. Citizen abuse will not be tolerated. Such abuse could potentially end law enforcement’s ability to do community notification.
