Level 3 predatory offender sought by department of corrections

Roderick L. Hamilton

UPDATED: Hamilton is in custody now

The Minnesota Department of Corrections (DOC) has issued a warrant for the arrest of a level three predatory sex offender who is no longer complying with the conditions of his release from prison.

Roderick Lamoryne Hamilton finished his prison sentences for first degree criminal sexual conduct, escape from work release, stolen property and theft on November 28, 2011, and was put on Intensive Supervised Release (ISR) in Hennepin County.  ISR is the closest form of monitoring the DOC has for offenders who are released from prison.

On Saturday night, Hamilton cut his GPS bracelet and walked away from his halfway house placement.

Hamilton is 43 years old.  He is African American, 6’0,” 180 pounds, with black, shaved hair and brown eyes.  He has a mustache and a small goatee.

Citizens should not attempt to confront Hamilton.  Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 911 or the DOC’s 24-hour tipline at 651-603-0026.

Hamilton is in custody

Less than four days after he walked away from a halfway house, level 3 offender Roderick Lamoryne Hamilton turned himself in to the Hennepin County Jail at 1 a.m. this morning.

Hamilton cut his ankle bracelet and stopped complying with his release conditions on Saturday. Most level 3 predatory offenders who become fugitives are quickly taken back into custody.

Department of Corrections (DOC) statistics through September 2011 show that 97 percent of fugitive level 3 offenders are apprehended within 72 hours.
