Grant County Sheriff's Office advises of Level 3 sex offender moving to Moses Lake

Posted: Updated:
MOSES LAKE, Wash. -

The Grant County Sheriff's Office would like the public to be aware that a level 3 sex offender will be living in the 900 block of West Broadway in Moses Lake following his release from prison on November 28. The sheriff's office says the man is not currently wanted for any crime. 

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office releases sex offender information pursuant to RCW 4.24.550 which authorizes law enforcement to release information to the public regarding sex offenders when the agency determines that disclosure of information is relevant and necessary to protect the public and to counteract the danger created by the particular offender. The content of the information made available, as well as where and how the information is disseminated, is restricted to the standards set forth in Chapter 4.24 and by the Washington State Supreme Court ruling in State v. Ward, 123 WA 2d 488 (1994.)

The sheriff's office says that the sex offender, identified as Lucio Lemos, has served his time imposed on him by the courts and let the sheriff's office know where he will be living following his release.

The Grant County Sheriff's Office has no legal authority to direct where a sex offender may or may not live. Currently in Washington State, there is no law or statute regarding where sex offenders may or may not reside; unless court-ordered restrictions exist, the offender is constitutionally free to live wherever they choose.

If you have a question about registered sex offenders living in Grant County, please contact Deputy Greg Hutchison, ghutchison@grantcountywa.gov, 509-766-3191 ext. 2312.
