The Mason County Sheriff’s Office has issued a general notification regarding 18-year-old level 3 sex offender, Mark Christopher Withem.
Withem is required to register as a sex offender for a June, 2011 conviction in Kitsap County Superior Court for first-degree incest. He has failed to do so.
The conviction stems from Withem, at age 12, sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy that he knew. On Feb. 23, 2012, Withem was arrested for failure to register. At that time, his Special Sex Offender Disposition Alternative was revoked. He is a level 1 offender, but because he has absconded from registration requirements, he is considered high risk.
Withem is described as a white male, 5 feet 10 inches and 125 lbs., with blond hair and blue eyes.
If you have any information regarding current criminal activity of this or any other offender, you are encouraged to call 911. For other sex offender information, visit http://so.co.mason.wa.us/ and click on Offender Watch.
