James Donald Myres

A registered sex offender from Rudy was arrested by the Crawford County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday on a charge of Rape and remains behind bars in the Crawford County Detention Center on a $75,000 bond.


James Donald Myres, 72, who we have featured in the past as a registered sex offender in Crawford County, was listed as living in the 2400 block of Appletree Road in Rudy as his last known address. . He was on the state sex offender list for a previous conviction for Felony First Degree Sodomy.


Arkansas Court Connect has no information on a James Donald Myres in it's database, so either his previous arrest came out- of-state or the record has been sealed and does not show up in general searches.


According to statistics released by the United States Crime Information Bureau, the average overall recidivism rate for those released from prison after a sex crime are 27.9 percent for treated offenders and 39.2 percent for untreated offenders.
