Three sex offenders released in South Kitsap

The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office will hold a community meeting Wednesday to notify the public about two Level 3 sex offenders who will be released — and a third who will be re-released — from prison soon and plan to live in or around South Kitsap.

The first, Loren Vernon Safly, also known as Loren Vern Jones, is a 28-year-old white male who will live in the 3800 block of West Old Belfair Highway.

According to court documents, Safly was convicted in 1991 of first-degree child molestation after sexually molesting a 7-year-old female relative over the course of two years.

In 1999, Safly was also convicted of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl, and has previous convictions for failure to register as a sex offender, unlawful imprisonment and narcotics-related charges.

He is described as 5-11, 228 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.

The second, Michael David Marchlewski, is an 18-year-old white male who plans to live on the 14000 block of Rabbit Lane after he is released on Aug. 31.

According to court documents, Marchlewski has twice been convicted of second-degree child molestation.

The first was in April of 2004, for having sexual relations with an underage female, and the second was in September 2004, for fondling two 13-year-old girls with the aid of an accomplice.

He is described as 5-9, 140 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.

Deputy Scott Wilson said a third man, Michael Allen Leo Wilkinson, a 24-year-old white male, is also being re-released soon to the SK area as a transient with no permanent residence.

He plans to stay in the West Bremerton and South Kitsap areas, where Wilson said he is frequently observed on foot.

Although Wilkinson was previously released last April, Wilson said the sheriff’s office was alerting the public again because Wilkinson was recently serving more time in jail on a non-sex-related offense.

In October 2004, Wilkinson was convicted of three counts of communication with a minor for immoral purposes.

In March, he was convicted of second-degree robbery after entering the locker room of a local area pool and robbing five juveniles at knifepoint.

Wilkinson is described as 6-3, 190 pounds, with red hair and blue eyes.

No community notification meeting is scheduled as Wilkinson does not have an approved residence, and is required to check-in, daily, with his community corrections officer.

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.
