The Bremerton Police Department has announced that a Bremerton sex offender has changed his address.
Joseph T. Patheal, a 35 year old Asian/Pacific Islander, has registered with Kitsap County to reside in the 2100 block of N. Cambrian Avenue in Bremerton. This reflects a change of address within the city. Patheal is 5'10", weighs 225 pounds and has black eyes and brown hair.
Patheal was convicted in Kitsap County in January 2001 of Child Molestation in the Third Degree. He has served the sentence imposed on him by the courts and is not wanted by police. Police say his criminal history places him in a classification level which reflects the potential to re-offend.
Those that would like further information about the sex offender notification system should contact the Bremerton Police Department's Community Resource Specialist at 360-473-5231 or the Warrants Division at 360-473-5374.
