ARLINGTON — David Christian Stout, a Level 3 sex offender, has moved into the 8600 block of 172nd Street NE in Arlington.
Stout is a 32-year-old Caucasian male who stands 6 feet tall, weighs 175 pounds, and has brown hair and blue eyes.
According to official documents, Stout pled guilty in Snohomish County Superior Court on Nov. 4, 1999, to one count of child molestation in the first degree, for which he was sentenced to 68 months in prison. The victims in this case were two boys, aged 7 and 10 years, whom Stout had only known for a short period of time.
Stout was spending the night at a friend's residence where the two victims were also spending the night. The three were sleeping in the living room when Stout sexually assaulted both victims throughout the night.
Stout has admitted to as many as 24 victims between the ages of 2 and 10 years, both male and female. Stout met many of these victims through church activities and some of the sexual assaults may have occurred on church property.
Stout was found non-amenable and did not participate in the sex offender treatment program while in prison. He is no longer on supervision and his only requirement is to register as a sex offender.
At this time, there is no plan to host a community meeting, although mailings are being sent to Stout's neighbors. For more information, log onto the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office OffenderWatch webpage on Stout.
