A 27-year-old man convicted of third-degree criminal sexual conduct moved to a residence near160th Avenue and Iris Road in Little Falls.
LITTLE FALLS — A 27-year-old man convicted of third-degree criminal sexual conduct in 2014 and released from custody in March of 2019 moved to a residence near 160th Avenue and Iris Road in Little Falls.
The Morrison County Sheriff's Office reported Monday, Aug. 1, Travis Kenneth Ahles, a Level 3 predatory offender, moved to the area on Sunday. A Level 3 predatory offender is the highest risk level and is considered most likely to reoffend.
Ahles engaged in sexual contact with a female teenager known to him.
The Morrison County Sheriff's Office released the information pursuant to Minnesota Statutes 244.052 and 253D . The statutes authorize law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a public registrant's release from prison or a secure treatment facility when the Morrison County Sheriff's Office believes the release of information will enhance public safety and protection.
Abuse of this information to threaten, harass or intimidate a registered individual is unacceptable and such acts could be charged as a crime. Such abuses could potentially end the ability of law enforcement to provide these notifications.
Ahles served the sentence imposed on him by the court and is transitioning into the community.
“This notification is not intended to increase fear but rather raise awareness. Law enforcement believes that an informed public is a safer public,” the sheriff’s office stated.
The sheriff’s office may not direct where this individual does or does not reside, nor can this agency direct where he works or goes to school.
Questions can be directed to Sgt. Jeremy Luberts at 320-632-9233.
