YAVAPAI COUNTY - A Level 3 (high risk) sex offender has moved into the Sedona area, according to the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.
40-year-old Michael Joseph MacVittie has advised the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office that he will be living at 36 Sunset Hills Circle in Sedona. MacVittie is not wanted by the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office at this time.
MacVittie was convicted of four counts of Indecency with a Child in Victoria County, Texas. MacVittie knew the victims, all boys.
This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is the Sheriff's Office belief that an informed community is a safer community. Citizen abuses of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass sex offenders will not be tolerated.
The YCSO would like to remind the public of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification program available at: www.ycsoaz.gov
This registry will allow anyone to enter a local address which will result in a list of sex offenders registered in Yavapai County living within a one mile radius of the entered address. The registry will also provide information about particular sex offenders registered in Yavapai County. Additionally, a free email notification program is available which will alert you to any sex offender registered in Yavapai County who resides within one mile of the address entered on your subscription.
The YCSO Crime Prevention Unit may be reached at (928) 771-7441 and is available to help you join or start a neighborhood watch program as well as provide you with useful information on personal safety. If you have information regarding current criminal activity on this or any other offender, please call Yavapai Silent Witness at (800) 932-3232.
