Sex offender living in Marysville area, sheriff’s office says

MARYSVILLE – The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office issued a public warning Friday about a convicted sex offender who will be living in the 12600 block of 26th Avenue NE in the Marysville area.

Peter Mitchell Ewing, 45, sexually molested a 9-year-old girl, sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen said. He was convicted of first-degree child molestation and was sentenced to 82 months in prison.

In 1990, Ewing was convicted of second-degree assault of a young child, she said. His other convictions include second-degree assault, misdemeanor assault, driving while under the influence, petty larceny and disorderly conduct, she said.

While he was in prison, Ewing refused to participate in sex offender treatment, Jorgensen said. He did successfully complete intensive inpatient substance abuse treatment, self-improvement programs that included victim awareness, job readiness, and anger/stress management. He also committed 11 major infractions of prison rules.

Ewing is a white male, 5 feet 8 inches, 180 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair. He has a tattoo on his left shoulder.

Sheriff’s officials will conduct a community meeting to discuss registered sex offender issues applicable to the local neighborhood. The meeting will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at Marshall Elementary School, 4407 116th St. NE. Residents with questions or concerns about the matter are urged to attend.

Ewing is not wanted by police. State law allows police agencies to notify the public about the presence in the community of convicted sex offenders who are considered a high risk to commit more crimes.

Budget meeting: City council members are anticipating a status quo budget next year.

Council members met Wednesday to iron out budget details, which will be the subject of a public hearing at 7 p.m. Tuesdayat City Hall, 107 Fifth St. Preliminary figures show that the 2002 budget will be about the same as the 2001 budget of $2.9 million.

The city anticipates a 1 percent increase in property taxes, as allowed by a recently passed state initiative.

City clerk Hester Ihrig said spending in 2002 will be much the same as in the past year, and the city plans no new major capital projects or equipment purchases. A 3.5 percent cost-of-living raise is planned. No layoffs or elimination of services are anticipated.

Ihrig said copies of the proposed budget can be viewed at City Hall prior to the public hearing.
