A felony arrest warrant has been issued for a Level III sex offender from Canada who is wanted for failure to register with detectives and was recently seen in Snohomish County.
Kevin Scott Miller, 45, was convicted of two counts of aggravated sexual assault in Canada, where there is a non-extraditable warrant for his arrest, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. He recently entered the United States from Canada and is required to register as a sex offender and regularly report to local law enforcement, but failed to report with sheriff’s office detectives as required on June 17 and on Wednesday.
In 1995, Miller was accused of picking up a 14-year-old girl who was walking down a road in Victoria, B.C., and attempting to strangle her with a rope and sexually assault her, the sheriff’s office said. That same year, he attempted to strangle another woman with a rope and physically assaulted her after he befriended her at a nightclub. He was convicted of both crimes in 1997 and declared a dangerous offender, but appealed the sentence twice and was successful on the second attempt. In 2006 he was convicted at trial and declared a long-term offender.
He was released from prison and went to a community residential facility in Vancouver, B.C., and in January crossed into the United States. He was detained by U.S. Customs on the warrant from Canada but because Miller is a U.S. citizen, the warrant was not applicable in the United States.
He told detectives he is homeless, but was recently seen in Arlington and Marysville. He is 6 feet tall, weighs 175 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call 911.
