Sex offender plans on transient life in Bremerton

PORT ORCHARD — The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday that a Level 3 sex offender is planning to move to the Central Kitsap area following his release from incarceration.

Michael Allen Leo Wilkinson, 24, told authorities he plans on living as a transient and staying in various Bremerton-area motels. He is described as 6-foot-3, 190 pounds with red hair and blue eyes.

Wilkinson was convicted in October 2004 of three counts of communication with a minor. He was arrested again in March for robbing five juveniles at knifepoint in a swimming pool locker room. While in custody, Wilkinson admitted to having several sexual relationships with juvenile males between the ages of 10 and 17. In addition, he was convicted of theft previously in 2001 and 2003.

No community notification meeting has been scheduled due to Wilkinson’s status as a transient. He is required to check-in with the Sheriff’s Office once a week and daily with his community corrections officer.

The Sheriff’s Office sends out notifications about Level 3 sex offenders as required by the Community Protection Act of 1990. Wilkinson is not currently wanted for any crimes.

Deputy Pete Ball, the Sheriff’s community resource officer, is available to assist communities in establishing block or neighborhood watch programs and provide the public with personal safety information. He can be contacted at (360) 337-7074.
