Level III Predatory Offender Community Notification

Pursuant to Minnesota State Statute, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office is releasing information on a Level III Predatory Offender who recently relocated to Jackson Township.*

Johnnie Lee Rhodes (aka Me Sahir-Alim Saifullah or Mr. Saifullah/Rhodes) moved to Jackson Township on 12/3/2020, in the vicinity of Dem Con Drive in rural Shakopee. Mr. Rhodes has served his sentence and was released from prison in 2010.  

Convicted sexual and predatory offenders have always been released to live in communities, but it wasn’t until the passage of the Predatory Offender Registration Act in 1991 that law enforcement could track movement of these offenders after their release in the interest of public safety. Offenders are required to notify their corrections agents or law enforcement whenever any of their registration information changes.

“The Scott County Sheriff’s Office takes an aggressive role in verifying predatory offender registration and making that information available to its residents,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen. “We want to follow the law and make sure that everyone is aware and knowledgeable about this person moving into the community to hopefully ease anxieties and fears.”

Please refer to the Notification Fact Sheet for further information: https://www.co.scott.mn.us/DocumentCenter/View/14723/20201207-Rhodes-Johnnie-Lee-Public-Fact-Sheet. Please note that abuse of this information to threaten, harass or intimidate a registered offender is unacceptable and such acts could be charged as a crime. Such abuses could potentially end the ability of law enforcement to provide these notifications.

* Please note that similar information was released regarding this individual on June 16, 2020 when he previously resided at this location and then relocated (press release https://www.scottcountymn.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=702.
