After being arrested on June 6th for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements because he moved without notifying the Sheriff’s Office, Eduardo Lopez has now updated his address. Therefore, the Sheriff’s Office is notifying the public that Level 2 Registered Sex Offender (Moderate Risk to re-offend with public notification justified) is now residing in Baxter County at the following address:
NAME: Eduardo Lopez
DATE OF BIRTH: 05/16/1962
NEW HOME ADDRESS: 198 Cedar Hill Trail
Midway, Arkansas 72651
The offender was convicted of Criminal Sexual Conduct in the Fourth Degree on January 7, 1999. This involved the offender having sexual contact with a 9 year old male. Public notification is justified due to the young age of the victim at the time the crime was committed.
This person is not wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public. This information cannot be used to threaten, intimidate, or harass Registered Sex Offenders. Citizen abuse will not be tolerated. Such abuse could potentially end law enforcement’s ability to do community notification.

Baxter County Sheriff
