The Izard County Sheriff’s Department released this information pursuant to Act 989 of 1997 and amendments of 2006 regarding sex offenders. Logan Edwards has moved to 363 Shadow Gate Road in Violet Hill. Edwards was convicted in November 2013. Edwards, then 19 years of age, had sexual intercourse with a 13 year old female.
Sheriff Tate Lawrence said that Edwards is classified as a Level 3 Offender which indicates these individuals usually have histories of repeat sexual offending and/or strong anti-social, violent or predatory personality characteristics. Sexual compulsions are likely to be present, but may be kept under control when relapse prevention plans are followed and treatment is continued. The offense patterns of Level 3 Offenders reflect a relatively high probability of re-offense and/or risk of substantial injury to victims should re-offense occur. Edwards is described as a 24 year old white male, six foot tall, 165 pounds having brown hair and blue eyes.
Lawrence said that a sex offender notification has been hand delivered to residences within a half mile radius of Edward’s residence. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is the sheriff’s belief that an informed public is a safer public. The Izard County Sheriff’s Department has no legal authority to direct where a convicted offender lives. Unless a court ordered restriction exist, the offender is constitutionally free to live where he/she chooses. This information cannot be used to threaten, intimidate, or harass registered sex offenders; otherwise law enforcement’s ability to do community notifications could potentially end.
