The Marion County Sheriff’s Office releases the following sexual offender information pursuant to ORS 181.507 & OAR 291-28-38. These statutes authorize the release of such information when it will enhance the public’s safety and protection.

William Michael Althouse was convicted and served sentences totaling more than 12 years in prison for felony Sexual Abuse I, Burglary I and Sodomy I.  These offenses require sex offender registration with law enforcement.  Althouse’s criminal history places him in a classification level which reflects the potential to re-offend.  He has a history of exhibition, and exposing himself, as well sexually offending minor children that are both known and unknown to him.

Althouse was granted supervision with the following restrictions: no contacts with minors (male or female), required participation in sexual offender treatment, no use of alcohol and submission to polygraph testing.

Althouse was on GPS monitoring, but he cut off his GPS ankle bracelet and failed to report to his Parole Officer.  He is now wanted.  His last known location was the area of Locust St. NE and Cherry Ave. in Salem around 12:30 pm on 06/29/10.   Althouse is known to frequent wooded parks and likes to loiter around the riverfront area.  He methodically plans his offending behaviors and should be considered a threat to minor children.
