     The Sheriff's Office is notifying the public that a sex offender has registered with the Sheriff's Office and is now residing in Marion County.

This offender has not yet been assigned a Risk Level by SOCNA (Sex Offender Community Notification Assessment).

NAME: Michael David Colten II
DATE OF BIRTH: 04/06/2000
HOME ADDRESS: 17908 Highway 14 North
  Yellville, AR 72687

      The offender was convicted of rape in Arkansas on January 1, 2024.  These offenses involved the offender engaging in sexual contact with an 18-year-old female.

      This person is not wanted by law enforcement at this time.  This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.  This information cannot be used to threaten, intimidate, or harass Registered Sex Offenders.  Citizen abuse will not be tolerated.  Such abuse could potentially end law enforcement's ability to do community notification.
