Dickinson Police issues warning for high-risk sex offender
The Dickinson Police Department issued a media release of a sex offender who now lives in Dickinson.
Jason Floyd Aune de-registered with The Dickinson Police Department shortly after the law enforcement agency released a public statement Wednesday, Nov. 17, and he was in the process of moving out of the city that night. Aune will have three days to register with law enforcement wherever he ends up staying.
The Dickinson Police Department is notifying the public about the registration of a high-risk sex offender that has moved into the area and was convicted of sexual assault in the late 1980s and 1990s in Montana.
According to a DPD press release, Jason Floyd Aune registered an address of the Badlands Motel at 71 Museum Drive. Aune is a 44-year-old white male, who is 6 feet, 1 inches tall. He weighs 190 pounds and has blue eyes and sandy-colored hair.
Aune was convicted of sexual assault in 1988 and 1996 of an 8-year-old boy and a 3-year-old boy in Big Horn Court, Mont.
"Aune is not being sought by law enforcement and this notification is simply for community notification as outlined in North Dakota Century Code 12.1-32-15(14)," Lt. Mike Hanel said in a press release. "Sharing of this information is believed to make our communities safer places to live and is an activity that is encouraged. Taking any kind of illegal action against the offender is prohibited by law and may lead to legal action against anyone taking such action."
