MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Police Department will be holding a public notification meeting March 31 to release information regarding a Level II sex offender residing within the city limits of Marysville.

William Lester Blalock has registered as a sex offender with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, and will be residing in the 15400 block of 51st Avenue NE, Marysville. Blalock is a 61-year-old white male who stands approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs approximately 195 pounds. He has brown hair and green-colored eyes.

The public meeting will be held March 31, starting at 7 p.m., at the Marysville Public Safety Building, on 1635 Grove St. in Marysville.

According to records, Blalock pled guilty to the crime of child molestation in the first degree in Snohomish County Superior Court on April 22, and was given a term of 67 months in prison. His victim was a 6-year-old female who was known to him.

This notification is not intended to increase fear. Rather, it is law enforcement's belief that an informed public is a safer public.

Level II sex offenders are those offenders whose risk assessments indicate a potential risk of re-offense within the community at large.
