Criminal history: According to court documents Haven-Dugan was age 15 when he was convicted of child molestation, 1st degree, after sexually abusing a family member. He also has three convictions for failure to register as a sex offender, and other convictions for theft, 3rd degree; malicious mischief, 3rd degree, and assault, 4th degree.
Haven-Dugan received minimal sex offender treatment during his incarceration as a juvenile due to problematic behaviors and disciplinary infractions.
Additional information: As of Nov. 3 there are 21,987 sex offenders who have registered as required and are living in Washington State. Of this number, 837 are registered with Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.
The sex offender listed above has served the sentences imposed on him by the courts. He has advised the sheriff’s office that he will be living within Kitsap County. This person is not wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather, an informed public is a safer public.
The sheriff’s office has no legal authority to direct where registered sex offenders may or may not reside. Unless court-ordered restrictions exist, registered sex offenders are constitutionally free to live wherever they choose. Passage of legislation entitled the “Community Protection Act of 1990,” mandates sex offender registration which, in turn, has provided civil authorities the means to monitor where sex offenders reside.
Abuse of information provided through the sex offender notification process, in order to intimidate, harass or threaten registered offenders, will result in an investigation and the filing of criminal charges against the perpetrators.
Neighborhood Watch: The sheriff’s community resource officer, Deputy Schon Montague, is available to assist communities in establishing block or neighborhood watch programs and to provide the public with information on personal safety. He may be contacted via e-mail at: email@example.com
