GREAT FALLS -

Charles Pettibone, a registered violent offender and Tier 3 sex offender, was recently released from the Montana State Hospital in Warm Springs and is currently residing in Great Falls. 

According to the Montana Department of Corrections, Pettibone was convicted in Cascade County for indecent exposure, partner/family member assault, and criminal endangerment. He also has a conviction in Judith Basin County for criminal endangerment.

Pettibone is listed on the Montana Sexual & Violent Offender Registry as a "sexually violent predator," and is categorized as "Tier 3" offender.

The SVOR defines a "sexually violent predator" as a person convicted of a sexual offense and who suffers from a condition that makes them likely to engage in predatory sexual offenses, or offenders 18 years of age or older who have committed an offense against a victim 12 years of age or younger 

MCA 46-23-508(1)(b) allows a registering agency to release any offender information in its possession if the agency determines that:

  • the offender poses an increased risk to a community’s public safety, and
  • dissemination will enhance public safety.

The following information is from the Montana Sexual & Violent Offender Registry website:

The Department of Corrections or the sentencing court designates a tier level that assesses the risk each offender poses for committing similar offenses in the future:

  • Level 1 Sexual Offenders – the risk of a repeat sexual offense is low
  • Level 2 Sexual Offenders – the risk of a repeat sexual offense is moderate
  • Level 3 Sexual Offenders – the risk of a repeat sexual offense is high, there is a threat to public safety, and an evaluator believes the offender is a sexually violent predator

Individuals convicted of one or more of the following offenses are designated as sexual offenders and are required to register with Montana's Sexual or Violent Offender Registration Unit.

  • Aggravated Promotion of Prostitution of a child under 18 years of age - MCA 45-5-603(1)(b) or (2)(c)
