The City of Renton will hold a public notification meeting May 15 for a Level 3 sex offender who is living in southwest Renton.

Kenneth Demone Sims, 41, was convicted in 1991 in King County of second-degree rape. According to Renton police, in 1990 Sims used physical force and threats to have sexual relations with a 25-year-old woman he knew.

He was ordered to have no contact with the victim or her family for 10 years and must not consume controlled substances. As a Level 3 sex offender, he has a high probability to re-offend, according to police.

Sims is 5-foot-7 and weighs 160 pounds. His current address is in the 200 block of Lind Avenue Southwest.

The meeting is scheduled for 3 p.m. May 15 in the City Council chambers, seventh floor, Renton City Hall, 1055 S. Grady Way.

According to state law, Sims is required to register with the King County Sheriff’s Office. The Renton Police Department has no legal authority to direct where a sex offender may or may not live.

The Renton Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit is available to help residents set up Block Watch programs.

The Crime Prevention Unit may be reached at 425-430-7521 or 7520. A resident who has information regarding current criminal activity of any offender is asked to call 911, according to police.
