South Lake Tahoe Police say Nevada sex offender allowed to seek work in California

Goetz2.jpgThe South Lake Tahoe Police Department has revised a warning it issued last month regarding terms of parole for registered sex offender from Nevada.

Contrary to a information in a July 26 Police Department news release, Wesley Goetz (pictured), 55, is permitted to travel into California to work and seek employment in the Lake Tahoe area, officials said.

Goetz must adhere to several special conditions, including staying away from areas or businesses that children frequent and not accessing the Internet without permission. However, police officials said, Goetz's attempts to obtain a business license through the city of South Lake Tahoe do not amount to a parole violation or other criminal violation.

Police reported that the city denied Goetz's business license applications to become a photographer of children, a handyman and a traveling salesman.

Police said Goetz is not wanted by law enforcement officials and is in compliance with terms of his supervision.

In clarifying Goetz's status and conditions of parole, police said they issued the initial news release "for the sake of allowing members of the public to protect themselves and their children and is prompted by Goetz's recent suspicious activity in South Lake Tahoe."
