Sex offender moves to Clinton
June 25, 2008 · Updated 9:32 AM
A man convicted of sex crimes with underage children has moved into a home in Scatchet Head.
Kruger Adkison, 61, is still on probation. The Island County Sheriffs Office has rated Adkison as a Level III sexual offender with high potential or risk to the public of re-offending. He is living in the 7900 block of Maple Point Drive in Clinton.
This assessment is based upon Adkisons history, records and other assessments, said Sheriff Mark Brown.
Brown will hold a neighborhood meeting to discuss the issue at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 4 at the Scatchet Head community clubhouse, 3742 Driftwood Drive.
Adkison has been convicted of multiple crimes.
In 1991, he was convicted of first-degree child molestation that stemmed from a case involving an 8-year-old female relative.
After his conviction in Washington, he moved to Alabama in 1995. In 2001, he was convicted in Alabama of first-degree sexual abuse with a different female relative, who was 10.
During the investigation of the Alabama crimes, Adkison was discovered with firearms and was subsequently convicted under federal law as a felon in possession of firearms. During this same investigation it was discovered that Adkison had failed to register as a sex offender.
Adkison is under federal probation supervision for the firearm conviction until 2011 and his Alabama sex crime convictions until 2010.
He was released from a halfway house on May 24 to his own home on house arrest due to medical conditions.
