Level 3 sex offender released in LS Lake Stevens Police Department to host community meeting


The Lake Stevens Police Department has released the following information regarding a Level 3 Sex Offender who recently moved to the 8900 Block of 11th St NE:

According to official documents, Travis Hammons first entered into a Juvenile Institution for the crime of Unlawful Imprisonment with Sexual Motivation on July 31, 2002. Hammons was then convicted of Assault in the fourth Degree in King County court on October 28, 2003 while a resident of Echo Glen.

In February of 2005, while a resident of a group home, Hammons sexually assaulted a known adult female. He was convicted of Attempted Rape in the second degree and went to a Juvenile Institution until his 21st birthday.

Hammons had been in Sex Offender treatment for several months before his release from the Juvenile Institution and was in treatment while in the community. Hammons' most current conviction was for failure to register as a Sex Offender. He was given a term of 43 months in prison.

Upon his release he registered as required. He will be under the supervision of the Marysville Office of the Department of Corrections and will be supervised for 36 months.

Hammons is not wanted by the police at this time. Sex Offenders have always lived in our community. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather, it is the belief that an informed community is a safer community.

The Lake Stevens Police Department will be hosting a Community Meeting regarding this offender on February 3, 2014 at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Lake Stevens School District Administration building located at 12309 22nd St NE, Lake Stevens-Lower Level. Please call Administrative Supervisor, Julie Ubert at 425-334-9537 if you have questions.
