Sex offender approved to live in Gorst

The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office will hold a community meeting on April 14 to notify residents that a Level III sex offender will be released soon to a residence in Gorst.

According to spokesman Deputy Scott Wilson, Gabriel Kelly Waldbillig, 22, has an approved residence in the 4000 block of West Alder Street in South Kitsap.

Waldbillig was convicted of both attempted first-degree rape of a child and of fourth-degree assault (with sexual motivation) in 1997.

He also has a lengthy history of vandalism, theft, assault, probation violations and various traffic offenses.

He is described as six-feet, 180 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

The meeting regarding his release is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 14, at the Full Gospel Assembly Church at 4341 Division Avenue West.

Another Level III sex offender, Wayne L. Telfer, will be released on Monday, April 4, but no meeting is scheduled since he has not listed a permanent address.

Telfer, 50, is described as 6-1, 222 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes.

Telfer was convicted of two counts of second-degree child molestation and two counts of third-degree molestation in 1995 after sexually assaulting four victims ages 13 and 14.

The investigation also concluded that there were many more victims than those identified, all reported to be between the ages of 10 and 14.

Telfer declined to participate in sexual deviancy treatment and committed one major infraction while incarcerated.

The Sheriff’s Community Resource Officer, Deputy Pete Ball, 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 at (360) 337-7074.

For further information on registered sex offenders within Kitsap County, contact Detective Steve Duckworth at (360) 337-5669.

Concerned residents are urged to attend the community notification meeting.
