A Level 3 predatory offender will be moving back to Blaine.
But there will be no public informational meeting because he is returning to a home he had been previously released to, and is not a new resident.
Kenneth Ray Levercom, 28, moved back to Baltimore Court NE Feb. 16, according to the Blaine Police Department.
Levercom has a history of sexual contact with female victims ages 13 to 17 including fondling and penetration. His victims knew him before these incidents happened, according to the Blaine Police Department.
According to police, Levercom was sent back to prison after violating stipulations of his probation in 2009. He has served his sentence and is not required to be on supervised release. Neither the Minnesota Department of Corrections nor the Blaine Police Department can dictate where he lives.
Notification meetings about Level 3 predatory offenders moving into a new neighborhood always include safety tips for parents. Blaine police remind parents to know where your children are at all times and work in building self-esteem in your child and being supportive in listening to their fears and replacing it with knowledge. It is important to teach children about making better decisions and that they have the right to say no when they sense something is wrong. Parents should also interview and monitor babysitters, group leaders, youth pastors and other adults children spend time with when parents are not present, and role play safety situations with them.
For more information, contact the Blaine Police Department at 763-785-6168. Call 911, to report criminal activity by Levercom or any other individual.
