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 At that time, his Special Sex Offender Disposition Alternative was revoked.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.
