Sexually violent predator not allowed to move to Jamestown area

JAMESTOWN, Colo. — The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office will not host a community meeting in Jamestown about Christopher Edward Lawyer, a sexually violent predator.

Lawyer, who was looking to move to the Bar-K neighborhood west of the town, will not move to the area, the sheriff’s office.

The Colorado Department of Corrections decided not to allow him to reside in the Bar-K neighborhood because the remote neighborhood would take law enforcement a lengthy amount of time to respond to if he committed a crime that demanded immediate attention.

Additionally, the area lacks adequate cellphone reception.

Lawyer will move to another community within Boulder County, and once the details have been worked out about his new residence, information will be released to the public, the sheriff’s office said.

This kind of disclosure is common when the offender has been determined to be a sexually violent predator and is subject to community notification.
