Level III sex offender moves to Navy Yard City

The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office recently issued a level III sex offender notification for 37-year-old Joshua Neal Hensley, who was released from the Monroe Correctional Complex Monday.

Hensley has notified KCSO that he will be residing in the 1200 block of Charlotte Avenue West, in the Navy Yard City area of Bremerton.

“The person named in this advisory has been convicted of a criminal offense that requires registration with the sheriff’s office in the county of residence,” KCSO Sheriff Gary Simpson said. “Further, his previous criminal history places him in a classification level that reflects the potential to re-offend.”

Hensley was convicted in 2010 of possessing depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct in Lewis County. In 2012, he was convicted in Thurston County of indecent liberties, third-degree rape, second-degree assault, and unlawful imprisonment after he sexually assaulted an adult female whom he had just met, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

In 2018, Hensley was convicted again in Lewis County for communicating with a minor for immoral purposes when it was discovered that he was communicating sexually with his juvenile daughter while he was incarcerated. He also has convictions for assault and theft.

A community notification meeting concerning Hensley’s release will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at the Givens Community Center in Port Orchard. KCSO Community Resource Officer, Deputy Schon Montague, will be available to assist communities in establishing block or neighborhood watch programs and to provide the public with information on personal safety. He may be contacted via email at smontagu@co.kitsap.wa.us.

For further information on registered sex offenders within Kitsap County, contact KCSO Detective Eric Adams at 360-337-4998.
