Notification of sex offenders is required by law.

Eilers said he's not sure why Dexter moved to the area because he has no known relatives here.

Dexter was released in 2007 on a Criminal Sexual Conduct conviction that was prosecuted in Kannabec County.

According to the state Department of Corrections, Dexter "has a history of sexual contact with juvenile females (age 13-14) that included fondling and penetration."

Dexter is 5-foot-9, 170 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
