Level 3 sex offender moving into Granite Falls


Robert "Bob" Graves, a convicted Level 3 Sex Offender, is moving to Granite Falls this month and will be residing on the 21300 block of Tiger Creek Rd.

Graves is 51-years-old and has previously been convicted of two counts of first degree child rape in Washington State, as well as convicted of endangering the welfare of a child in Montana. 

Graves is a white male with red hair and has a cross tattoo on his right hand.

He is 5'9" tall and weighs approximately 200 pounds. He has green eyes.

According to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office Graves pled guilty to two counts of rape of a child and was given a 140 month prison sentence on April 2, 2002.

The seven-year-old victim was known to Graves. She told a friend about the assaults that occurred between May 2000 and April 2001. The police were called as soon as the friend found out about the abuse.

Graves was also convicted in Montana for a crime that occurred in August 1999 for endangering the welfare of a six-year-old girl. The girl was found sitting in front of him while he had his pants down. When asked, the girl said she was playing with Graves' pee pee.

According to the Sheriff's Office's report, Graves declined to enter the Sex Offender treatment program while in prison.

He is on active supervision with the Marysville Office of the Department of Corrections. His probation conditions include the following:

• He cannot possess or peruse pornography;

• He cannot use, purchase or consume alcohol;

• He is not allowed any direct or indirect contact with his victims;

• He must submit to Breathalyzer testing as required;

• He cannot date women with or be in a relationship with families with minor children and cannot spend the night in a home where minor children live or are spending the night;

• He can have no contact with minors;

• He shall enter and successfully complete treatment;

• He cannot enter parks, playgrounds or schools;

• He cannot use, possess or consume any controlled substances without a legally issued prescription;

• He is not allowed any employment or volunteer position where he will be in contact or control of children;

• He cannot own, purchase or have in his possession or in his control any firearm or deadly weapon.

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office wants to remind citizens that, "Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated. Further, such abuse could potentially end law enforcement's ability to do community notifications. We believe the only person who wins if community notification ends is the Sex Offender, since sex offenders drive their power through secrecy."
