High-risk sex offender will move to Rochester on June 7

Rochester soon will have its seventh Level 3 sex offender living in the community.

Police Lt. Al Kuehl said today that Frank Edward Johnson, 43, is being released from prison June 7 and will live in a transitional living complex in the 2100 block of Campus Drive Southeast. A community notification hearing is set for 6 p.m. Wednesday in room 104 at Rochester City Hall.

Johnson was convicted of third-degree criminal sexual conduct in Olmsted County in 2002 and given a 58-month prison sentence, Kuehl said. The conviction was for sexually assaulting a woman he met at a local bar.

Kuehl said Johnson's risk assessment level was raised to Level 3 following probation violations in both 2006 and 2007 that caused him to be returned to prison. When he comes out this time, he will be on intensive supervised release until his prison term expires in early 2011.

He becomes the seventh Level 3 sex offender living in Rochester. They are considered at highest risk to reoffend. Kuehl said there are 237 convicted sex offenders of all levels on probation in Rochester.
