WASHINGTON (KYTX) – Today the U.S. Marshals
Service (USMS) concluded Operation Guardian, a three-year, national
initiative specifically targeting the country's most dangerous noncompliant
sex offenders. Deputy marshals and law enforcement partners arrested 345
individuals who had failed to register with state authorities as required by
Marshals worked with state and local officials to identify specific
non-registering fugitives based on their danger to the public and prior
convictions for sex offenses. As of today, USMS investigators have located
427 offenders of 444 sought (or 96 percent of those targeted), including 82
individuals found outside the United States. These individuals represent
more than 500 prior convictions for sexual offenses.
"I'd like to thank each of the Deputy U.S. Marshals and state and local law
enforcement officials who contributed to the success of this important
operation. These dedicated professionals have helped to make our communities
safer by taking dangerous fugitives off the streets," said Attorney General
Eric Holder. "Today's announcement sends a clear message: that the Justice
Department and its allies are firmly committed to safeguarding our nation's
young people from all forms of exploitation and abuse. And we are determined
to bring noncompliant sex offenders to justice."
"The United States Marshals Service will not tolerate noncompliant and
violent sex offenders who evade the law. The message we send to these
individuals is there is nowhere you can hide," said Director Stacia Hylton
of the U.S. Marshals Service. "Operation Guardian enabled us to bring to
bear the full weight of international, federal, state and local law
enforcement resources and intelligence to locate the most egregious sex
offenders—those who have victimized innocent children."
The USMS assigns 129 criminal investigators to conduct sex offender,
non-registrant investigations on a full-time basis. Operation Guardian was a
collaborative effort led by the Marshals Service in cooperation with
Interpol, the Diplomatic Security Service, Customs and Border Protection,
and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
"The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is proud to partner
with the U.S. Marshals in helping to protect our nation's children," said
John Ryan, chief executive officer, NCMEC. "We applaud the overwhelming
success of Operation Guardian which located hundreds of the country's most
dangerous noncompliant sex offenders."
Among those arrested during Operation Guardian were:
Lee Roy Ramirez, one of "Wisconsin's
Most Wanted," on April 22 in Portland, Ore. Ramirez was wanted by the
Wisconsin Department of Corrections since 2003 for probation violation
on an original charge of second degree sexual assault of a child. The
intensive fugitive investigation covered several states and ultimately
led investigators to Oregon. Ramirez is in custody in Oregon awaiting
extradition back to Wisconsin.
James K. Jenkins, on Oct. 9, 2012, in
Garland, Texas. Jenkins was wanted in DeKalb County, Ga., for failure to
register as a sex offender and for probation violation based on a
weapons offense. His original offense occurred Dec.15, 1999, when he
raped a 15-year-old girl. He was convicted of statutory rape and
sentenced to three years in prison, seven years of probation, and
required to register as a sex offender in the state of Georgia. Jenkins
moved and did not notify the Probation Office or the Sheriff's Office of
his location. In October 2012, a Crimestoppers program received an
online tip that placed Jenkins in Garland, Texas. Investigators
conducted surveillance and arrested Jenkins with a loaded .38-caliber
handgun in close proximity.
David Sherant, arrested Oct. 3, 2012, by
DUSMs from the District of Nevada and members of the Las Vegas SOAP Task
Force. Sherant was wanted by the Utah Department of Corrections for
violating his term of supervision by failing to register as a sex
offender. He was convicted in August 2000 of sexual exploitation of a
minor. After release from the Utah State Prison, Sherant absconded
parole, and failed to register as a sex offender as required by law.
Investigators learned that the 31-year-old Sherant was passing himself
off as 18-year-old "Mikey Miller" currently residing in Las Vegas. On
Oct.15, 2012, Sherant was extradited to Utah. His probation was revoked
and he was remanded to the custody of the Utah Department of
Darrell Craig Sinclair, on Feb. 28,
2012, in Mexico. Sinclair was wanted by the Riverside County, Calif.,
Sheriff's Department for almost 10 years on a $500,000 arrest warrant
for failure to register as a sex offender. He was previously convicted
of one count of lewd acts against a child in Los Angeles County in 1976,
and seven counts of lewd acts against a child in Orange County, Calif.,
in 1983. USMS investigators determined that Sinclair was in Ajajic,
Mexico, and he was taken into custody by Mexican Immigration Officials.
Mexican immigration officials escorted Sinclair to Los Angeles
International Airport, where he was arrested by Deputy U.S. Marshals.
Michael Rybkin, on Nov. 9, 2010, in New York City.
Rybkin was wanted by the Hudson County, N.J., Sheriff's Department for a
parole violation and by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on a warrant
of deportation, and is a sex offender in the State of New Jersey. Rybkin
is a German citizen. USMS investigators developed information that
Rybkin was residing in New York City and using the internet. Rybkin, who
was previously banned from NYC Public Libraries, was observed
masturbating in front of two female children in October 2010 at a
library, but eluded capture. On Oct. 27, 2010, Rybkin was charged by the
USMS with violating the Adam Walsh Act and a federal warrant was issued
for his arrest. On Nov. 9, 2010, USMS investigators arrested Rybkin at
the Grand Central Branch of the NYC Public Library. On March 10, 2011,
Rybkin pleaded guilty to the AWA violation, and was sentenced Jan.19,
2012, by U.S. District Court Judge William Pauley to 63 months
incarceration and lifetime supervised release on electronic monitoring.
The Behavioral Analysis Unit at the USMS
National Sex Offender Targeting Center worked with the investigators to
identify information related to the fugitives across a number of personal or
social dimensions, including past sexual offending behavior. The prior
convictions of the located offenders represent hundreds of victims and
thousands of known sexual assaults. Most of the sexual assault events were
engaged against children, and many involved extreme violence.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimates more than
700,000 sex offenders reside in the U.S. and that more than 100,000 are
classified as noncompliant or unregistered. Since its inception in 2006, the
SOIB has planned and executed more than 900 sex offender compliance and
enforcement operations. During these operations, the USMS partnered with
more than 4,800 state and local law enforcement agencies to conduct more
than 150,000 compliance checks.
