LEVEL 2 - SAMUEL OKSMAN

SEX OFFENDER NOTIFICATION – RISK LEVEL TWO

The Richmond Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to RI General Laws 11-37.1-1 et seq., which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender living in the area when a Sex Offender Board of Review determines that the release of information will enhance public safety and protection.  The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense or other offense that requires registration with the law enforcement agency which has jurisdiction over their residence

This offender has served the sentence imposed by the courts and will be living in the location below.  This offender is not wanted by the police at this time.  This notification is not intended to increase fear.  It is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.

The Richmond Police Department has no legal authority to direct where an offender may or may not live.  Unless court ordered restrictions exist, an offender is constitutionally free to live wherever the offender chooses.  Further, their previous criminal history places them in a classification level which reflects only the potential to re-offend.  Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but it was not until passage of the Sexual Offender Registration and Community Notification Act that law enforcement even knew where they were living.  In many cases, law enforcement is now able to share information with you.  Abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered offenders will not be tolerated and may be a crime.  Further, such abuse could potentially end law enforcement’s ability to do community notifications.  We believe that if community notification ends because of community harassment, the only person who wins is the sex offender, since sex offenders derive their power through secrecy.

The Richmond Police Department is available to help you by providing you with useful information on personal safety.  The Richmond Police Department may be reached at (401)539-8289.  If you have information regarding a current activity of these or any other offender please call 911.
