As required by state statute, the Delta Police Department hosted a community meeting last week to inform residents that a sexually violent predator is moving into the community. The meeting was attended by about 40 people, many of whom live in the North Delta area where Christopher Stubblefield has moved.
Stubblefield, 32, was convicted of attempted sexual assault on a child and unlawful sexual contact in 2007. Both were Mesa County convictions. In 2012 he was convicted of a parole violation. He also has a misdemeanor conviction for possession of marijuana. He was released on parole in January 2012 and has moved to Delta to live with an aunt at 1567 G86 Lane. He is not employed.
While Stubblefield's photo was distributed to those present at the meeting, one of the goals of the DPD presentation is to provide educational information about sexual offenders, in an effort to enhance public safety.
Use of the information provided to harass or threaten Stubblefield or his aunt is prohibited, the DPD stressed.
The designation of sexually violent predator is given by the parole board when offenders deny responsibility for their actions. It also indicates a high level to re-offend.
While sexually violent predators are the only category of sex offenders subject to community notification, all convicted sex offenders are required to register with their local law enforcement agency. There are 34 registered sex offenders on the Delta Police Department's website; another 67 registered sex offenders live in the unincorporated area of Delta County.blog comments powered by Disqus
