Wanted Wednesday: Deputies looking for sex offender in Alachua County


Alachua County deputies say Leamon Brown Jr. is wanted on two sex offender related charges.

Brown was convicted in 2003 on a lewd and lascivious charge on a victim under 18. Alachua County Sheriff's spokesman Brett Rhodenizer said since his conviction Brown has failed to register multiple times in Alachua, Marion and Levy counties.

" Mr. Brown's sexual offender status actually stems from a 2003 conviction and he's been in and out of prison on multiple occasions for failing to comply with the provisions of his sexual offender status. We really need the public's help in locating him again this time," Rhodenizer said.

Now deputies say once again he is not properly registered and has failed to provide updated information to law enforcement about where he's living.

" Of course we're concerned when there's a sex offender out there on the streets not complying with the provisions of the court," Rhodenizer said.

Brown is 34 years old, five foot eleven and weighs 165 pounds. If you have any information call Crimestoppers at 352-372-STOP.
