Task force conducts sex offender compliance sweep

LAKE COUNTY – Two men who violated the terms of their probation were arrested this past weekend as part of an enforcement operation checking on registered sex offenders' compliance with registration rules.


Chief Deputy James Bauman of the Lake County Sheriff's Office reported that on Saturday, July 26 the members of the Region II Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) Task Force conducted a compliance sweep of the registered sex offenders living in the communities of Lakeport, Upper Lake, Nice and Lucerne.


Three, two-officer teams, consisting of members of the sheriff’s office and the District Attorney’s Office spent the day conducting compliance checks on a total of 120 sex registrants throughout the north end of the county, Bauman reported.


The task force, led by Sheriff’s Det. Mike Curran, found approximately 95 percent of the registrants visited to be in compliance with the terms of their registration, and the terms of their probation or parole when applicable, according to Bauman.


Several, however, were found to be out of compliance with their registration requirements in some manner, said Bauman, and those cases will be referred to the District Attorney’s Office for complaints to be filed.


Bauman said two of the registrants, identified as 51-year-old Richard Allen Berry of Nice, and 32-year-old Logan Shane Sloan, also of Nice, were arrested for parole violations.


Berry had violated the terms of his parole by possessing pornographic material and Sloan’s parole violation was due to his consumption of alcohol. Bauman reported that both are being held at the Lake County Jail without bail.


The SAFE Task Force will continue its efforts to ensure sex registrant compliance with addition sweeps, parole searches and probation searches in other parts of the county in the months to come, Bauman reported.
