Sex offenders disappear

Friday, March 24, 2006

Fulton County deputies are looking for two sex offenders who have failed to register with Fulton County.

Kenneth James Hamilton, 28, of Viola and Jonathan J. Sims, 34, of Mammoth Spring are accused of failing to register, a class D felony.

Hamilton, a level 3 sex offender, has not reported to the Fulton County Sheriff's Office to verify his address to local law enforcement since Sept. 11, 2004. He last registered on March 11, 2004, with an address located on White Horse Mountain outside Cherokee Village.

Authorities said Hamilton has checked in with his probation officer, whose office is located near Fulton County Deputy Kevin Burns, who handles sex-offender cases for the county, but has not alerted Burns of his whereabouts.

Hamilton moved from White Horse Mountain between Dec. 9, 2004, and Jan. 13, 2005, but didn't report his address to local law enforcement. Hamilton has made no attempt to report as required by Arkansas Law, according to authorities.

Hamilton was charged in Hot Springs County with sexual abuse, first degree.

Jonathan Sims last registered with an address on 19th Street in Mammoth Spring on May 5, 1998. Sims did not report on Nov. 5, 1998, to verify his address and has made no attempt to do so since then, according to authorities.

Sims was convicted in Howell County with child molestation, first degree. He is a level 3 sex offender.
