Sex offender moves to Kingston from Hansville

KINGSTON — Michael John Sheehan, a level 3 sex offender, has moved back to Kingston.

Sheehan is living in the 28000 block of Gamble Bay Road NE.

A community meeting is not scheduled, as Sheehan previously resided at the same address.

Sheehan, 57, was living in the 38000 block of Hood Canal Drive NE, Hansville.

Sheehan is a white male, 5 feet 10 inches, 220 pounds, gray hair and green eyes.

According to court documents, Sheehan was convicted of second-degree burglary with sexual motivation in 2003, after being found in possession of items from inside a residence. It was determined that he had been peeping in the windows of that residence. In 2007, Sheehan was convicted of three counts of voyeurism after being caught peeping into windows in an apartment.

“Their previous criminal histories place them in a classification level that reflects the potential to re-offend,” said Sheriff Steve Boyer.

Sheehan declined to participate in sex offender treatment while in prison. Sheehan also has convictions for failure to register as a sex offender, possession of stolen property, attempting to elude a pursuing police officer, theft, criminal trespass, narcotics offenses and obstructing law enforcement.

As of July 10, there are 18,277 active registered sex offenders who have registered as required and are living in Washington State. Of this number, 829 are registered with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office living at county addresses; 270 are registered to addresses within the city limits of the four municipalities in the county, 106 offenders are incarcerated in jail or prison, and 24 are listed as being transient.
