Two more sex offenders scheduled for release to SK

The community of Manchester will be home to one of two level three sex offenders scheduled for release to South Kitsap at the end of this month, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Department.

James Donald Border, Jr., 28, will live in the 8000 block of East Caraway Road in Manchester when he is released on March 31.

He is 6-4, 215 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.

According to the sheriff’s department, Border pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor in July 2003.

At the time of his offenses, he was the manager of the A&W restaurant on Mile Hill Drive and sexually assaulted two of his employees.

Border denies his offenses, claiming the misconduct was consensual, and did not participate in sex offender treatment during his term of incarceration.

He has no other criminal history, and received no infractions while incarcerated.

A community meeting regarding Border’s release is scheduled on Wednesday, March 24, in the Manchester Elementary School library, 1901 California Avenue East, at 7 p.m.

The second sex offender scheduled to live in South Kitsap is Derek Lee Parris, 24, who will live in the 4000 block of Desoto Court SW, near Gorst, when he is released March 22. Parris is 5-10-inches, 140 pounds, with black hair and hazel eyes.

According to the sheriff’s department, Parris’ most recent conviction was in December 2002, for communicating with a minor for immoral purposes as a result of providing juveniles with alcohol and marijuana.

A 13-year-old female and a 17-year-old male subsequently engaged in sexual intercourse while Parris encouraged others in the residence to watch.

Previously, Parris was convicted of third-degree rape of a child in February 1998 for having sexual relations with a 14-year-old female, along with unrelated firearms violations, theft, forgery and various driving-related offenses.

A community meeting concerning the residency of Parris is scheduled for 7 p.m., Friday, March 26, at the Full Gospel Assembly Church, 4341 Division Avenue West at the intersection of State Route 3 and Division Avenue.
