EPD: Sex offender moves into area

ENID, Okla. — As required by law, Enid Police Department is notifying the public about an aggravated sex offender who has moved in Enid.

EPD was notified by Oklahoma Department of Corrections that William Scott  Potts has been classified as an aggravated sex offender and was just released from prison.

Whenever a sex offender classified as aggravated or habitual moves into a residence, the police department is required by state statute to notify residents of the neighborhood.

There are eight possible offenses that can require a person be classified as an aggravated sex offender, if they were convicted after Nov. 1, 1999.

Habitual offenders are those offenders convicted of two or more sex crimes after Nov. 1, 1997, or those previously convicted with another sex offense conviction after Nov. 1, 1997.

Potts was convicted of possession of child pornography Feb. 11, 2005, in Ketchikan, Alaska.

He also was convicted of lewd or indecent proposals/acts to a child April 9, 2001, in Ketchikan. His victim was a child under 13 years of age.

Potts is not wanted for any crimes and he has registered as a sex offender with EPD.

Potts is a white male, 51 years old, 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs 185 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

He currently is residing at 2712 Rock Island Boulevard No. 25 in Enid.
