“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.

LOCAL SUBJECT ARRESTED FOR SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF A MINOR

Over the past several months, Detectives with the Lake Havasu City Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Unit have been conducting an investigation of sexual exploitation of a minor after receiving information from the Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) indicating that known pornographic images of children have been flagged to a potential residence in Lake Havasu City.

On December 19, after pinpointing an exact location, Detectives executed a search warrant at a residence in the 3000 block of Whirlwind Lane where the suspect was residing. During the search warrant, multiple items of media to include cell phones, laptop computers and tabletswere located and seized as part of this investigation. The suspect, 27-year-old Lake Havasu City resident Larry Gene Henderson,was subsequently arrested after he was located at a separate location in Lake Havasu City.

As a result of this investigation, Larry G. Henderson was charged with twenty-three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. During his initial appearance, Henderson was held on a $100,000 cash-only bond and transferred to the custody of the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.

At this time, there is no evidence to suggest that Henderson has had contact with any local juveniles and there were no locally known victims associated with this particular case.

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.
