Sex offender reportedly moving to Richland

A sex offender considered highly likely to re-offend told police he will be living in Richland once he's released from prison on Friday.

Robert Roger Hicks, 45, is 5-foot-11, 195 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

He will be living in the 2400 block of Swift Boulevard.

Hicks was convicted in 2000 of indecent liberties with forcible compulsion and is classified as a Level 3 sex offender.

He is not wanted by police, but is required to tell them where he is living.

He most recently was in prison on a theft charge and will be on probation with the state Department of Corrections for three years.
