Sexual / Violent Offender Registry

Montana Statutes
Butte-Silver Bow Law Enforcement Department (BSBLED) is releasing this information pursuant to MCA 46-23-508, which authorizes law enforcement agencies to release any offender registration information relevant to the public if the agency determines that a registered offender is a risk to the safety of the community and that disclosure of the registration information may protect the public. All Montana statutes may be viewed at the State of Montana website or the State of Montana Sexual or Violent Offender Registry.

Evaluation & Tier Levels
The individuals who appear on this list have been convicted and sentenced or in custody for a sex offense after July 1989, or a violent offense after October 1995, that requires registration with the sheriff’s office in the county of their residence. Pursuant to MCA 46-23-509, some sexual offenders may be given an evaluation which places him/her in a tier level which reflects the potential to re-offend. Tier levels also assess the threat that the offender poses to public safety. Learn more about tier levels.

Sex / Violent Offender Registry
This information is provided to enhance public safety and protection, not to increase fear. Sex and violent offenders have always lived in our communities, but law enforcement was not allowed to share this information with you. After passage of this law, we are now allowed to share this information. The sheriff’s office has no legal authority to direct where a sex or violent offender may or may not live unless court ordered restrictions exist. Civil misuse of the information may subject that person to civil damages. Anyone who uses information contained in the Sex / Violent Offender Registry to commit a criminal act against another person is subject to criminal prosecution.

Registry Updates
The Sexual or Violent Offender Registry changes constantly and is updated Monday through Friday by the Butte-Silver Bow Law Enforcement Department (BSBLED). Although every effort is made to keep this list accurate and current, the BSBLED cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. If you have reason to believe that any of the information contained on this site is incorrect, please contact Special Deputy Gregg Edelen, 406-497-1186 or 406-490-8689 or by email.
