Sex Offender Levels and What They Mean:
The majority of sex offenders are classified
as Level I offenders. They are considered at low risk to re-offend.
Washington Sate Law strictly prohibits public
disclosure of Level I Registered Sex Offender information.
Level II offenders have a moderate risk of re-offending because
of the nature of their previous crime(s) and lifestyle (drug and alcohol abuse
and other criminal activity). Some have refused to participate or failed to
complete approved treatment programs.
Washington State Law prohibits public
disclosure of Level II Registered Sex Offenders except under specific criteria.
Level III offenders are the greatest risk to the community. Most
are predatory, have other violent crime convictions, may have refused
treatment, and are known substance abusers. Community notification is the most
Washington State Law permits notifications
regarding Level III offenders that include relevant, accurate, and necessary
information. This information may be disclosed to the public at large.
