Sexually violent predator in Craig


Jeff W. Hammond, who the state has labeled a “sexually violent predator,” arrived Wednesday in Moffat County, according to a news release from the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office.

Hammond, 28, has listed his address as transient.

He was convicted in Jefferson County of one count of attempted sexual assault on a child in connection to an incident that occurred July 21, 2001. He was sentenced to two years in state prison and is on parole until May 7, 2012.

Hammond was evaluated by the state and found to have “positive results” on specialized tests, and was therefore ruled a sexually violent predator.

The Sheriff’s Office release asks residents to remember any attempts of vigilantism, harassment or intimidation are not only detrimental to the safety of the community but also illegal.

As part of Hammond’s probation, he is not allowed to be in contact with children 18 or younger, visit any parks or places children frequent or drive without his probation officer’s permission.

He also is under constant supervision with a GPS monitor.

TWO YEARS...for an SVP attempting to sexually assault a CHILD??? What the hell is wrong with our system? And now he is released in a transient? Great, just great. His picture has not yet posted on the Sheriff's or CPD website, but I suggest everyone keep an eye out for that post so you at least know who to watch out for. This is the 2nd one that has recently relocated to our little town - and both transients. Gone are the days when you can send your kids out to play or ride their bikes to the park. What a sorry world we live in.

Go to Go to top tab of "Inmate Locator". Click on "Find An Inmate". Then click "Enter Here". Type in his last name. All Hammonds in DOC come up. Click on "Hammond, Jeff W" and ....voila! It's interesting to me that according to the website his offense came out of Moffat County...

Thanks Oliver21 for some very useful info. Not to circumvent your link, but here is a direct link to picture and description...for those pc challenged readers:

I have two of these "people" living in my neighborhood, and I know who they are and where they live. Diligence and keeping an eye out, along with frequent checking of the Police and Sheriff websites to keep up on them is important. I might go as far as to print their pics and info and post it on the fridge so my child can see and know who they are as well. Knowledge is power, take advantage of what we are given to teach our children.

Have a heart, even a "sexually violent predator," might have a mom and dad that they want to visit for Christmas.

Can you imagine what it might be like to have a kid like that, I might leave town for a few days.

This is exactly why I am against locations like CAPS being in our community. We get all of these parolees introduced into our community and they all stick around lessening our community values. I am not sure if this guy came from CAPS or not but the issue remains the same. Maybe if no one will hire him he wont stick around and will be forced to leave. Have no pity for these individuals, only their victims.
