Police set sex offender meeting
August 27, 2008 · Updated 4:17 PM
SMOKEY POINT A registered sex offender is living in Smokey Point and the Snohomish County Sheriffs Office will meet with the community to answer questions about him.
Jonathan Collins Wienker is not wanted by the police at this time, but he was convicted in 2006 in Snohomish County of communication with a minor for immoral purposes. Wienker was also convicted in 2000 in Douglas County of rape of a child in the first degree and child molestation in the first degree. He is a level three sex offender who has served the sentences imposed on him by the courts, and he is living on the 18800 block of Smokey Point Boulevard in Arlington.
A community meeting to discuss Wienker is scheduled March 22 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. in the Shoultes Elementary School gymnasium, on 13525 51st St. NE in Marysville. The Snohomish County Sheriffs Office is authorized to inform the public of a sex offenders release, but it has no legal authority to direct where a sex offender may or may not live, unless court-ordered restrictions exist.
The Sheriffs Office reminds citizens that they may not threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders, especially since such citizen abuse could potentially end the ability of the Sheriffs Office to do community notifications. However, the crime prevention officers of the Sheriffs Office will be available to help citizens set up block watches, and provide them with useful information on personal safety.
Wienker has brown hair, blue eyes, is five feet seven inches tall, weighs 170 pounds and was born Aug. 19, 1983. For further information about him, you may view his complete bulletin at the Sheriffs Office Web site, at www1.co.snohomish.wa.us/Departments/Sheriff/Services/Sex_Offender.
