Mason County Sheriff’s Office posted a notice Monday that transient, level 3 sex offender James Henry Christy has moved into Shelton.
Christy, 58, was recently released from custody.
According to the notification, Christy is classified as “very high risk” to re-offend. He was most recently convicted of felony harassment. He previously pleaded guilty to felony indecent exposure in Kitsap County for exposing himself to a woman in the common area of an apartment complex in 2010.
Christy also pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent liberties with forcible compulsion in 1993. That conviction stems from when Christy was 38 yearsold, and was baby-sitting a friend of a relative’s children. While he was alone with the two girls, ages 5 and 6, he groomed the little girls by playing sexually oriented games. Eventually the sexual molestation escalated to rape. During the investigation of the offenses, Christy placed sole responsibility for the sexual assaults on the girls.
Christy is described as a white man, 6 feet, 188 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
