Authorities say a level three convicted sex offender has been released from prison and has taken up residence in the 1000 block of West Third Street in Winona.
45-year-old Kenneth Maurice Lofton was sentenced to 77 months in prison in 2008 on third degree criminal sexual conduct with a teenaged victim.
Lofton has served his sentence and is not wanted by authorities.
Law enforcement is required under state law to notify the community when a level three sex offender moves in to a neighborhood. Level three offenders are deemed by the state the most likely to re-offend.
