On June 30, 2015 at 2:00 pm, the Dixon Police Department arrested Kenneth J. Sims, age 25, of 1503 West 1st Street, Dixon on a valid Dixon Police Department arrest warrant for Failure to Register as a Violent Offender Against Youth. Bond on the warrant was set at $10,000. Sims was processed and turned over to the Lee County Jail as he was not able to post bond.
The arrest stems from a sex offender and violent offender against youth compliance check which was conducted by the Dixon Police Department on 06/19/15. During the course of the compliance check, officers meet with sex offenders and violent offenders against youth to confirm they are still residing at their registered address and their personal information on the registration forms is accurate.
Chief Langloss would like to remind citizens to contact the Dixon Police Department at 815-288-4411 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-Caught-U (1-888-228-4488) with information about any illegal activity.
The charges are merely an allegation and all parties are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
