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.

Taking any kind of illegal action against the offender is prohibited by law and may lead to legal action against anyone taking such action."
