Another sex offender moving into apartment complex in North Spokane
SPOKANE, Wash — For the second time in two days, the community has been notified of a sex offender moving into a single apartment complex in north Spokane.
The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office sent a sex offender notification bulletin, saying 68-year old William Keaton is moving into the 1200 block of N. Lincoln. The only residence on the block is an apartment complex that now houses 11 level two and three offenders.
Keaton was convicted of rape by force in 1982. He recently relocated to Spokane and had moved into a home on North Walnut.
Despite efforts by some community members, there are no city or state regulations that prohibit multiple offenders from moving into a single residence.
