Arrest warrant issued for registered sex offender

Wednesday, May 25, 2011 | 7:37 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Boone County Sheriff's deputies issued an arrest warrant Wednesday for Shawn Michael Turner, 37, for failing to register as a sex offender. Turner has a previous warrant issued against him for violation of probation and parole.

Turner, a registered sex offender, is required by law to report any change of address to the Sheriff’s Department and has failed to do so for several weeks, according to a press release. At multiple times, residents reported Turner’s absence from his previous residence at 5660 N. Rocky Fork Drive.

The violation of probation and parole warrant is connected to Turner’s conviction for criminal nonsupport, or failure to provide child support.

Turner also was arrested in early April for distribution and manufacturing of a controlled substance and carrying a firearm as a convicted felon. Details of this arrest were described in a previous Missourian article.
