Pierce County detectives in the sex offender registration unit are asking for the public’s help to find Douglas Jermaine Bush. In 2006 he was convicted of rape of a child in the third degree in Clark County. He has also been convicted of felony harassment.
According to official court records, Bush engaged in sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl. He then threatened the teen and her family while in prison.
“This particular level 3 sex offender has a history of not registering and moving around from county to county. Plus, on top of that he harasses victim's families so he's somebody who's out there, probably doing the same thing, harassing people, moving around and not registering, so we want to get him identified and what location he’s living in and make sure he registers and hold him accountable," said Det. Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff's Department.
In 2012, Bush was convicted of felony harassment in Clark County after sexually assaulting a woman he knew. Bush did not participate in a sex offender treatment program while he was in prison.
Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to Bush’s arrest. Call the hot line anonymously at 1 (800) 222-TIPS. This is one of the cases being featured Friday night on “Washington's Most Wanted” at 11 p.m. on Q13 FOX.
