The Franklin County Sheriff's Office is advising residents that a Level III sex offender has moved into the 2300 block of East Alvina Street in Pasco.
Michael Figueroa, 35, was convicted of one count of child assault and sex abuse in Roosevelt County, Mont., in 1994.
He is described as a white male, 5-foot-7, 190 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
Level III sex offenders are considered highly likely to re-offend.
Kennewick police also have a meeting each month to provide information about registered sex offenders and share information about how residents can keep their families safe. The meetings are at 6 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month at the police station, 211 W. Sixth Ave.
