Marysville Police set sex offender meeting

The Marysville Police Department will be holding a public notification meeting to release information regarding a Level II Sex Offender residing within the city limits of Marysville. Mark Malachi Watkins has registered as a sex offender with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, and will be residing in the 6500 Block of 64th Street NE, Marysville. Watkins is a 25 year old white male who is approximately 6’0” and 180 pounds.

He has brown hair and brown colored eyes.

The public meeting will be held Tuesday, May 19, beginning at 7 p.m. and will be held at Marysville Public Safety Building, 1635 Grove Street Marysville.

According to Official documents, Watkins pled guilty to three counts of Child Molestation in the 1st degree and one count of Incest in the 1st degree. His victim ages were 6, 11, 13, and 14. Watkins was released from prison in May 2007 and is no longer on supervision for these crimes.

This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather, it is our 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.
