Rochelle Police Conduct Sex Offender Compliance Checks

During the month of March, the Rochelle Police Department conducted registration compliance checks on all the registered offenders living in the city, being one (1) Adult Sex Offender, seven (7) Child Sex Offenders, four (4) Violent Offenders Against Youth and six (6) Juvenile Sex Offenders.

As a result of these compliance checks the following offenders were found to be out of compliance and arrested for violating their offender registration requirements, which is a felony offense:

Ralph E. Cordle (Child Sex Offender): next court appearance is in Ogle County on 032719.

Katherine A. Milliron (Child Sex Offender): next court appearance is in Ogle County on 042219.

Michael J. Sherrill (Violent Offender Against Youth): a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

One Juvenile Sex Offender was arrested and has a pending Ogle County court date as well.

Offender registration laws vary by type of registrant, as do the required return registration dates, therefore the Rochelle PD performs random compliance checks to verify registrants are actually living at their registered address. Offender addresses are verified after their initial registration, but compliance checks will often reveal that the registered offender has moved and has not notified the Rochelle PD of said move, as required by law.

If you know of a registered offender who is living at an address other than what is listed on the Illinois State Police offender websites, you urged to contact the Rochelle PD.
