Police issue sex offender notice
Submitted by West Valley View on Wed, 04/19/2017 - 12:00am
Avondale police have issued a public alert about a registered sex offender who has moved into the city.
Anthony Escobar Jr., 22, is living in the 1400 block of South 112th Avenue, police said.
Escobar is not wanted by any law enforcement agency, police said.
In 2016, Escobar was convicted in Maricopa County Superior Court of attempted child molestation and sexual abuse of a minor. He was sentenced to 12 months in the Maricopa County Jail. His victim, a juvenile female, was known to him.
Authorities have classified Escobar as a Level III, or high-risk, sex offender, police said.
The alert is the result of the Arizona sex offender law that took effect in 1996. The law requires community notification for some sex offenders.
