Sex offender changes address on North Whidbey

A Level 2 sex offender has changed addresses on North Whidbey, according to the Island County Sheriff’s Office.

Robert J. Andres, 25, will be living on the 500 block of Basil Road. As a Level 2 offender, he’s considered a moderate risk of reoffending.

Andres pleaded guilty in Island County Superior Court on March 13 to rape of a child in the third degree. Andres, who was 19 at the time, admitted to having a sexual relationship with a girl who had just turned 14 years old, according to court documents.

Andres told investigators he considered the girl a girlfriend and lived at her home with her family.

Andres was sentenced under the special sex offender sentencing alternative, or SSOSA, which allows an offender to get less time incarcerated in exchange for participating in sexual offender treatment and following certain conditions.

Andres violated the conditions by using drugs and engaging in unapproved sexual relationships, according to the sheriff’s office. His SSOSA was revoked and he was sent to prison.

Andres’ criminal history includes burglary and theft charges, the sheriff’s office stated.

Andres is white, about 6 feet tall, 185 pounds, and has brown eyes and brown hair.
