Level 2 Sex Offender Community Notification 

The Lake Havasu City Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute 13-3825 (Sex Offender Community Notification Law).  This offender has indicated he is living in Lake Havasu City. 

Paul H. Frantz resides at 3674 Hiawatha Drive in Lake Havasu City.  Frantz is a 47-year-old white male, 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighs 235 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.  In 2000, Frantz was convicted of rape in the third degree in Hillsborough, Oregon, after he sexually assaulted an adult female.

Frantz has been convicted of and has completed his sentence for a sex offense. Frantz has registered with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office as a convicted Level 2 Sex Offender and is currently residing at the listed address. Frantz is not currently wanted by the Lake Havasu City Police Department or any other police agency at this time.

“Megan’s Law” is the name for a 1996 federal law, and informal name for subsequent state laws, requiring law enforcement authorities to make information available to the public regarding registered sex offenders.  The law was named after seven-year-old Megan Kanka, who was raped and murdered by a sex offender who lived in her neighborhood.  Megan’s parents demanded legislative action and believed every parent should have the right to know if a sexual predator moves into their neighborhood.

A risk assessment determines what level sex offender an individual is based on a series of questions and point values.  The purpose of the assessment is to try and gauge the offender’s likelihood of relapse into criminal behavior.  There are three levels of sex offenders in Arizona ranging from a low of 1 to a high of 3.  Level 1 offenders are not community notifiable by state statute and are considered to be a low risk to reoffend.   Level 2 and level 3 sex offenders are community notifiable, with level 2 considered an intermediate risk and level 3 considered a high risk and most likely to reoffend. 

This notification is not intended to cause fear; rather it is believed that an informed community is a safer community. Further information on crime prevention, personal safety or to help concerned citizens join or start a Neighborhood Watch Program is available by calling the Lake Havasu City Police Department at (928) 855-1171.  If you have any information regarding current criminal activity on this or any other offender, please call Havasu Silent Witness at (928) 855-TIPS or the Police Department.

For more information on Level 2 and Level 3 Sex Offenders living within Lake Havasu City limits, please visit:  www.lhcazsexoffenders.com andwww.offenderwatch.com.

TEXT-A-TIP

To text a tip to Lake Havasu Police Department, you must have text messaging enabled on your cellular phone and subscribe to a participating cell phone carrier. To begin your tip message, enter the number “274637” (which spells out the word CRIMES) in the phone number line. Then start your message with LHCPD (to ensure the tip is routed to the proper police department) and enter your tip with as much detail as possible.

Once you send your tip via text, the information is received by an independent party in service provider that will assign each tipster a random system-generated “alias.” The purpose of this is to ensure the anonymity of the tipster.

Tipsters will automatically receive a response text providing them their “alias.” Please be aware that the Lake Havasu Police Department will send a response text if more information is needed to process the tip.

However, the anonymity of the tipster remains secure because the information is sent to a third party service provider that is independent of the police department. The police department will only know the tipster by their “alias.”

If the tipster does not wish to participate in two-way communication with the police department they can text the word STOP to 274637 (CRIMES.) Doing so will block the Lake Havasu Police Department from responding.
