Sex offender plans to live in local hotels

A man who reportedly admitted to having sexual relationships with several juvenile males will be released this month to live in the Bremerton area, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

Michael Allen Leo Wilkinson, 24, is a Level III sex offender convicted of three counts of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes in October, 2004. He was subsequently convicted of second-degree robbery after pulling a knife on five juveniles in the pool locker room at the YMCA in Bremerton.

During his latest incarceration, Wilkinson admitted to having sex with several boys, at least one as young as 10-years-old.

Sheriff’s Office spokesman Deputy Scott Wilson said Wilkinson does not have an approved address, but indicated that he plans to live in various Bremerton-area motels.

No community notification meeting is scheduled, but Wilkinson will be required to check-in on a daily basis with his community corrections officer, and once a week with the Sheriff’s Office.

He is described as six-foot-three, 190-pounds, with red hair and blue eyes.

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.
