Longmont Public Safety notified residents that a court-designated “sexually violent predator” is currently homeless and residing in Longmont.
Russell Ehrlich, 46, was convicted in 2012 of sexual assault with a 10 year age difference in both Boulder and Weld counties. In 2013, Ehrlich was convicted of sexual exploitation of a child — possession of material.
Longmont police are required to publicly share when sexually violent predators move into the area by Colorado law, the post said. Longmont Public Safety spokesperson Robin Ericson said the alert was issued because Ehrlich recently moved back to Longmont. He has previously registered in Longmont.
According to a Longmont Public Safety Facebook post, there are currently 269 registered sex offenders in Longmont, five of which are classified by the courts as sexually violent predators.
Sexually violent predator is a court designation given to sexual offenders based on certain criteria, including risk of reoffense.
Ehrlich is 5-feet 11-inches tall, weighs 185 pounds and has brown hair and eyes, Ericson said. To report criminal or suspicious activity by this or any other person, Longmont Public Safety ask the public to please call 911 or the Longmont Police Department non-emergency line at 303-651-8501.
