The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office announced a level 3 sex offender is residing in the Gorst area.

KCSO reported Cecil Emmet Dudgeon, 79, has registered with the sheriff’s office as now residing in the 4300 block of State Highway 3 West.

Dudgeon is described as a 5-foot-10, 175-pound white male with gray hair and brown-colored eyes.

“The person named in this advisory has been convicted of a criminal offense that requires registration with the sheriff’s office in the county of residence,” said Sheriff Steve Boyer.  “Further, their previous criminal histories place them in a classification level that reflects the potential to re-offend.”

Concerned residents are urged to attend the community notification meeting concerning the residency of  Dudgeon is scheduled for 6 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 26, in the Kitsap Room at Givens Community Center, 1026 Sidney Ave., Port Orchard.

According to court records, Dudgeon was convicted in 1984 in  California of three counts of unlawful sexual intercourse against two juvenile females  who were known to him.  In 2001, Dudgeon was convicted in Jefferson County of indecent liberties with force, after molesting a female juvenile family member for approximately 13 years.

Dudgeon refused to participate in sex offense specific  treatment while incarcerated.  He was found non-amenable for treatment.

KCSO’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 can be contacted at 360-692-7746.
