WALKER, LA — In July, Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Deputies were alerted by High Desert Prison officials in Nevada that a convicted sex offender was released from jail. His plans were to relocate to Livingston Parish. Nevada Prison officials confirmed that the offender was informed of registration requirements.
Donald Christopher Schultz, 66, was convicted in Washoe County, Nevada for statutory rape on a minor on December 10, 1976. Upon release from prison, Schultz is required to register as a Tier 2 sex offender for 25-years.
Livingston Parish Deputies located Schultz at a residence located on Florida Blvd. in Walker, Louisiana. Deputies asked to see his identification. Schultz did not produce a Louisiana ID card. Schultz was advised that under Louisiana Law, any convicted sex offender is required to go by the Office of Motor Vehicles and obtain an ID card with ‘sex offender’ on the label. This is required within 3 days of establishing residence in Louisiana.
LPSO Deputies learned Schultz has been living with a relative at the Walker residence for 17-days.
Schultz was charged with Failure to Register as a Sex Offender and was booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center.
