Registered Sex Offender Keith Neal lists SW 148th and First Ave South as his address.

Det. Michael Luchau with the King County Sheriff’s Office alerts us that a Level 3 risk sex offender has registered as being homeless in Burien, listing the cross-streets of SW 148th Street and First Ave South (map below) as his address.

The registered sex offender’s name is Keith Neal (pictured above), who is described as a 23-year old African-American male, 5’10” tall, 165lbs., with brown eyes and black hair.

According to the KCSO, a Level 3 Sex Offender is “considered to have a high risk to re-offend. They usually have one or more victims and may have committed prior crimes of violence.”

“I am requesting community notification bulletins to be sent to the businesses and residents that live in the area of where he registered as being homeless,” Luchau said.

Here’s more info on Neal, according to the KCSO website:






The KCSO website also defines the different sex offender levels as:

  • Level 1:  The vast majority of registered sex offenders are classified as Level 1 offenders. They are considered at low risk to re-offend. These individuals may be first time offenders and they usually know their victims.
  • Level 2 offenders have a moderate risk of re-offending. They generally have more than one victim and the abuse may be long term. These offenders usually groom their victims and may use threats to commit their crimes. These crimes may be predatory with the offender using a position of trust to commit their crimes. Typically these individuals do not appreciate the damage they have done to their victims.
  • Level 3 offenders are considered to have a high risk to re-offend. They usually have one or more victims and may have committed prior crimes of violence. They may not know their victim(s). The crime may show a manifest cruelty to the victim(s) and these offenders usually deny or minimize the crime. These offenders commonly have clear indications of a personality disorder.

    Interesting. Mr Neal has a facebook page and lists his husband as Randy dixon Jr neither of which appear to be homeless …

  2. William Forest says:

    Lovely.. Burglaries, vandalism, bank robberies on the rise and now we have a sex offenders on the loose in Burien.

    Say it isn’t so Mikey 🙁

  3. Burien Parent says:

    Ya, I went straight to Keith Neals fb page which showed a pic of him with Randy Dixon Jr from Kent listed as his spouse and all their pics were together on both their pages. Maybe he’s not so homeless he just doesn’t want to register in Kent and have his neighbors know about him. Now they are deleting relationship status and blocking all the pics. Betcha wish you had changed your security settings sooner huh idiots?

    Last Comment Awaiting Moderation. Again. I’m sorry Scott, I’ll start taking a deep breath and counting to ten before type, I promise.
    I have a related question, does anyone know what it means when someone is required to register but it does not list their offense? There is a registered offender about, I don’t know, 2 blocks from the library? SW 155th & 4th Ave SW, but it does not list what his offense was. Now one block farther at 156th it lists the offender and his conviction of ‘child molestation’ and every other registered offender in the area has their conviction listed. Just this one does not. Does anyone happen to know if there is a reason for that?

  5. Charley Charles says:

    I am not defending this person, but there seems to be something missing here. It says he “attempted to have sexual contact” with two younger male acquaintances in 2003 when he was 14. The INCIDENTS (my emphasis, the word is from the report) weren’t reported until 2004 and a year later he was sentenced. How does “attempted to” fit the Level 3 description:

    “Level 3 offenders are considered to have a high risk to re-offend. They usually have one or more victims and may have committed prior crimes of violence. They may not know their victim(s). The crime may show a manifest cruelty to the victim(s) and these offenders usually deny or minimize the crime. These offenders commonly have clear indications of a personality disorder.”

    Perhaps there are other details in his record they aren’t allowed to reveal?

    • Burien Parent says:

      No they can’t, and we have to take into consideration most of these people plead guilty to a lessor charge to avoid the publicity of a trial and the prosecution is happy to negotiate to get the confession and to avoid the stress on the victim. He was also a minor when it was commited so they are likely to have most of the details sealed but if he is registered as a level 3 then it is certainly a more complicated a picture than they paint

    You people have no sense at all. Putting 14 year old kids on a registry and telling the community they are dangerous? No psychologist or psychiatrist EVER diagnosis a person a pedophile at 14.

    Then, with utter audacity, the newspaper publishes what a level means, of which is just a generalization and very well may NOT mean anything to this person’s case.

    But you put a supposedly dangerous person out for total community notification, allow any one to see where this person is, and give a map to where he is supposed to be sleeping.

    That is supposed to be protection of the community?

    You are insane and have no rational thoughts. An irrational policy or law, by nature, can be IGNORED.

    • Burien Parent says:

      I think it’s an irrational policy that child molesters and rapists are not given the death penalty. Does that mean I should IGNORE that law and help justice along a little?

      That was an ignorant comment. Just because you do not agree with the law does not mean it does not apply to you. If you believe it truly unjust then take the proper steps to change the law. If that doesn’t work, move.

      • Rudy101 says:

        That is easy to help justice a little, isn’t it? In fact, harassment and threats are a community sport; all encouraged and supported by the law. They give you names, photos, addresses and a map with directions to help justice along, eh?

        You don’t get it, I know. But laws outcomes can’t be harm. The only outcome of the registry is harm. You can’t show any other evidence except theory and anecdotes that the registry does anything other than harm.

        That’s the difference. And exile? That is an illegal act by the State committed against an individual who has to flee the because of the harm caused by State action.

        The point is, you really believe, as most Americans believe, there is no limit to laws as long as you use proper language. You want a harassment and threatening law, that forces homelessness? All you need to do is call it public safety.

    • ATKMH says:

      Obviously you’ve never been a victim of sexual assault. Whole different perspective.

  7. Rudy101 says:

    Also, you all think you can make sleeping in a bed illegal because registering makes housing almost impossible?

    You think, because he registered an intersection he MUST sleep there?

    You think that your laws forces a person homeless and therefore he must be homeless or go to jail?

    Go to North Korea. Only in places of utter despotism and totalitarianism could they arrest a person for sleeping in a bed with a roof.

    Your registry is not protecting anyone, and this news article illustrates it very nicely.

    (I also love the speculation about this guy in the other comments. It ensure fear for everyone).

    Well, it is well understood that the registry is a punishment, mostly designed to put people into jail. HEY, but you are the ONLY country in the world that makes it a crime to sleep in a bed. Aren’t you proud?

  8. Rudy101 says:

    I AM defending this person. Anyone got anything to say about it? Oh, and you might question if I might also be a sex offender.

    I will say this, though, I left the sex offender registry because of this exact sort of thing that this newspaper is describing.

    I am LAUGHING at your registry and registry laws. How do you like that?

  9. Loren says:

    Hey Rudy101,
    Your punishment is that you have to live inside your own head.
    One of the worst places on Earth I am sure.

    • PJ says:

      Amen Loren!!!! I’m sure in Rudy’s head it is a living hell. Or is it that he is a sociopath and does not have any subconsciousness
      about what he has done. Very sad indeed.

  10. Ivan says:

    Without more detail, it’s a bit confusing. What kids don’t play “you show me your wee wee and I’ll show you mine”? We all fooled around in the neighborhood at those ages, it’s just something kids do as they explore their sexuality. Now if he forcefully raped these boys, I can see the seriousness of the punishment. But more than likely some flipped out DA went all spaz and made him out to be Charles Manson. He was 14! Kids just barely start masturbating at that age and are curious. They can not possibly grasp the consequenses of their actions, especially something that feels so good. But ohh no he’s a terrible monster because he wanted to have some fun with his friends. And now you people have ruined his life before it had a chance to start, I’ve seen it all before.
