(MASSILLON, Ohio) – Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is asking for the public's help in locating a convicted sex offender who is accused of not registering his address for the sixth time.
Deputies with the Stark County Sheriff's Office filed a warrant for the arrest of David Frantz Jr. in August 2011.
Frantz was classified as a Sexually Oriented Offender in 1997 when he was convicted on a charge of Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a female minor. After his release from prison, he was convicted five times for failing to provide a change of address in 1999, 2002, 2004, 2008, and 2009.
The 39-year-old last registered his address as 841 11th Street SE in Massillon.
The suspect has several tattoos, including a lizard on a crystal ball, a sun, and a heart on his right arm, the word "Dave" on his left arm, a wolf on his chest, and a cross on his back.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of David Frantz Jr. should contact the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) at 855-BCI-OHIO (855-224-6446) or the Stark County Sheriff's Office.
This news release is part of Attorney General Mike DeWine's Crimes Against Children Initiative. As part of the Crimes Against Children Initiative, Attorney General DeWine will publicize convicted sex offenders who have victimized children and are wanted on outstanding warrants. Other parts of the initiative include the establishment of a Crimes Against Children Unit at BCI, creation of a rapid response team for crimes against children, and specialized law enforcement training through BCI and the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy (OPOTA).
