Sex Offender Joel Alexander Jailed In Facebook Contact


A 35-year-old level two registered sex offender from Washington has been arrested for allegedly attempting to meet an 11-year-old Facebook friend for sex.

Joel Ryan Alexander, of Snohomish, was taken into custody after reportedly traveling to Elma to meet the boy in the men's restroom at a local park.

Instead, an undercover officer was there to kindly greet him.

The initial investigation began when a concerned mother noticed her son engaging in inappropriate conversations over Facebook with the suspect.

An agent with the MECTF subsequently took over the Facebook account and began to correspond with Mr. Alexander.

During the chats, he allegedly also sent child pornography to the undercover detective.

Alexander had previously been placed on the state's registry following a 2001 conviction on child rape charges.
