A man des­ig­nated by the courts as a “sex­u­ally vi­o­lent preda­tor” has moved to Lafayette from an­other ju­ris­dic­tion.

Nathaniel Stark, 25, moved to 109 San­dler Drive in Lafayette, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease from Lafayette po­lice. A note sent to Lafayette res­i­dents states this is the first sex­u­ally vi­o­lent preda­tor to re­side in the city.

Stark is con­sid­ered a re­peat of­fender, and can­not have con­tact with any­one younger than 18, ac­cord­ing to a com­mu­nity no­ti­fi­ca­tion bul­letin.

The note sent to res­i­dents states of­fi­cials are per­son­ally no­ti­fy­ing area schools, day care cen­ters, the Bog Burger Re­cre­ation Cen­ter, Boul­der Val­ley School Dis­trict se­cu­rity and area law en­force­ment agen­cies.

Be­cause Stark was deemed by the courts to be a “sex­u­ally vi­o­lent preda­tor” and a high risk to re­of­fend, law en­force­ment is re­quired to no­tify the com­mu­nity.

Ac­cord­ing to court records, Stark was ar­rested in 2016 by the Boul­der County Sher­iff’s Of­fice on sus­pi­cion of two counts of sex­ual as­sault, sec­ond-de­gree as­sault and un­law­ful sex­ual con­tact.

He ul­ti­mately pleaded guilty to as­sault and two counts of un­law­ful sex­ual con­tact, and was sen­tenced to one year in jail fol­lowed by 18 months of work re­lease and 10 years of sex of­fender in­ten­sive su­per­vised pro­ba­tion.
