The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office is required to release the following information pursuant to ARS 13-3825, the Community Notification on Sex Offenders Law. The offender in this publication has indicated that he will be living in the unincorporated area of Yavapai County. It is the responsibility of the Chief Law Enforcement Office, having jurisdiction where the offender resides, to make notification to the community. Notification must be made when certain sex offenders are released from Arizona State prison, accepted under an interstate compact, or released from the county jail back into the community. Offenders are categorized into three levels: Level One [low risk to the community], Level Two [intermediate risk to the community] and Level Three [high risk to the community].

Jacob Frederick Buczynski, 38, has been convicted of a sex offense, which allows for community notification. He has advised the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office that he will be living at 1274 S. Settlers Circle E in Cottonwood. This individual is not wanted by the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office at this time.

In Mesa, in 2005 the 28-year-old offender had sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old female known to him. He was convicted in Maricopa Superior Court of sexual conduct with a minor, not on parole or probation. He is considered a Level Two or intermediate risk offender.

This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is the Sheriff's Office belief that an informed community is a safer community. Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass sex offenders will not be tolerated.

The YCSO would like to remind the public of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification program available at the YCSO website.
