The Jamestown Police Department is warning residents that a high-risk registered sex offender is living in Jamestown.

James Kermit Hanenberg, 44, is living at 2308 Circle Drive (North Dakota State Hospital), Jamestown. He is described as a white male, 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 230 pounds with blue eyes and blond hair.

Hanenberg has been assigned a high-risk assessment by the North Dakota Risk Level Committee, Office of the Attorney General.

Hanenberg was convicted of corruption/solicitation of a minor on March 27, 2006, in Cass County District Court, North Dakota. The police department said he pushed a minor female to the ground and had forcible intercourse with her. He was sentenced to four years, with one year suspended for five years with supervised probation.

He was convicted of gross sexual imposition on April 16, 1987, in Barnes County District Court in North Dakota. The police department said he engaged in forced sexual acts with two girls, ages 3 and 6 over a four-year period. Hanenberg threatened to kill the girls or family members if they told, authorities said. During the investigation, Hanenberg also admitted to molesting multiple other victims, boys and girls, of various ages. He was sentenced to five years suspended for five years and five years supervised probation.

Hanenberg is not wanted by police at this time and has served the sentence imposed by the court. The notification is intended for public safety and not to increase fear in the community. The information should also not be used to threaten, assault or intimidate Hanenberg. Attempts to harass, intimidate or threaten him or his family, landlord or employer will be turned over for prosecution.

Printed handouts of Hanenberg's demographics are available at the Jamestown Police Department.
