Christopher Sollie Smith, a Level 3 sex offender, moved to Kitsap County and is registered with the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office as a transient with no fixed address.

The 29-year-old was convicted of third-degree child molestation in 1998 for sexually assaulting a young girl known to him. In 2004, he was convicted of third-degree rape of a child after having sexual contact with a teenage girl known to him. Smith also has a previous conviction for burglary and three convictions for failure to register as a sex offender.

While incarcerated with the Washington State Department of Corrections, he had major infractions for fighting. In 2006, Smith was found non-amenable to participate in sex offender treatment.

Because he is a transient, no community meeting is scheduled. He is required to check in with the sheriff’s office once per week.
