Level III Sex offender Smith registers as a transient

A Level III Sex Offender recently registered to live in Kitsap County as a transient, the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Christopher Sollie Smith, 29, will currently have no fixed address and will be required to check in with the Sheriff’s Office once a week. There is no community meeting scheduled at this time.

Smith is described as 5-6, 140 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.

According to court documents, he was first convicted of a sex offense — third-degree child molestation — in 1998 after sexually assaulting a young girl known to him.

In 2004, he was convicted of attempted rape of a child, third-degree, after having sexual contact with a teenage girl known to him.

Smith was also convicted of burglar, and has three convictions for failing to register as a sex offender.

While incarcerated, he reportedly received infractions for fighting, and would found ineligible to participate in sex offender treatment.

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.
