Sheriff warns residents of sex offender in area

   The King County Sheriff's Office is warning Duvall-area residents that a registered sex offender has moved to the Mountain View area. The Sheriff has reported that Bob Conklin, formerly of Redmond, has recently moved to a rented residence on the 20200 block of Mountain View Road NE.

   Conklin was convicted in 1994 of four counts of 3rd-degree child molestation after using his position of authority to gain access to teenage boys for the purpose of sexually assaulting them. The Sheriff's Office said Conklin has complied with the state law requiring persons convicted of certain offenses to register with the office.

   The King County Sheriff has set an informational meeting to discuss the situation on Friday, Jan. 7, 7 p.m. at Stillwater Elementary School.
