Sex offender charged with failure to comply
A Level 2 sex offender was arrested early Wednesday on a felony warrant after allegedly leaving an area treatment center last May and not notifying authorities of his new place of residence.
Tre Terrell Bradley, 28, who listed a Devalls Bluff address in his jail paperwork, was taken into custody shortly before 2 a.m. on a charge of failure to comply with sex offender registration and reporting requirements, punishable by up to 10 years in prison. He remained in custody Thursday in lieu of a $3,500 bond and is set to appear on April 10 in Garland County District Court.
According to court records, Bradley was convicted of fourth-degree sexual assault on June 29, 2018, in Stuttgart. He was assessed on Nov. 1, 2018, as a Level 2 sex offender with the obligation to verify his information with law enforcement every six months. On July 30, 2021, he was convicted of possession of a controlled substance in Stuttgart and sentenced to five years’ supervised probation, and on Feb. 14, 2022, in White County of possession of drug paraphernalia and sentenced to four years’ probation.
On May 8, 2022, Garland County sheriff’s Deputy Courtney Kizer, who serves as the department’s sex offender coordinator, received an email from Bradley’s probation officer, Thelma Delancey, who stated she had received a call from the Shalom Recovery Center in Hot Springs indicating Bradley had left the treatment center on May 7 and he had not updated his information with her.
Kizer contacted the counselor at Shalom and confirmed Bradley, who had been staying there, had left the facility. She noted that, as May 25, Bradley has not updated his residence information and was still listing the Shalom Center as his address.
A warrant for his arrest was issued on May 25.
