SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - The Spokane County Sheriff's Department wants you to know about a sex offender that has moved to a residence in Spokane Valley. 

36-year-old Joseph Wheeler has moved to the 11400 block of E. 7th Ave. in Spokane Valley. Wheeler was convicted of Unlawful Imprisonment in 2004. Wheeler's victim in that case was a 16-year-old boy who was a stranger to Wheeler. After his conviction, Wheeler served 116 months and is currently under DOC supervision. He was also convicted in 1997 of Communication with a Minor for Immoral Purposes. 

Wheeler is not wanted by law enforcement, however the Sheriff's Department wants to inform the public of his place of residence due to his previous history, which places him in a classification level that is likely to reoffend. The Sheriff's Office believes an informed public is a safer public. 

If you have any questions about our community awareness program, please call: 509-477-6609 or e-mail administrator at rgriffey@spokanesheriff.org.
