Level III Predatory Offender Community Notification

Pursuant to Minnesota State Statute, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office is releasing information on two Level III Predatory Offenders who recently relocated to Jackson Township.


Under the current public health guidelines relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office held and recorded a virtual Community Notification and Education Meeting on September 30, 2020.  During the presentation, representatives from the Minnesota Department of Corrections and Sheriff Luke Hennen provided information on offenders’ offenses, conditions of release, guidelines about predatory offender registration, and general safety information.  The recording of this meeting is available on the Scott County YouTube Channel at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T01TETCAyko&feature=youtu.be


Archester Rodgers, Jr. and Jeremy Shane Zimmermann have been convicted of Criminal Sexual Conduct or another offense that requires registration with law enforcement pursuant to Minnesota Statute.


Mr. Rodgers moved to Jackson Township on 9/28/2020, and Jeremy Shane Zimmermann moved to Jackson Township on 9/30/2020.  Both of these individuals are living in the vicinity of Dem Con Drive in rural Shakopee.  Please note that the Scott County Sheriff's Office may not direct where these individuals do or do not reside, nor can we direct where they work or go to school.


Mr. Rodgers and Mr. Zimmermann have both served the sentences imposed on them by the court and are transitioning into the community.  This notification is not intended to increase fear but rather raise awareness.  We believe that an informed public is a safer public.


Convicted sexual and predatory offenders have always been released to live in communities, but it wasn’t until the passage of the Predatory Offender Registration Act in 1991 that law enforcement could track movement of these offenders after their release in the interest of public safety.  Offenders are required to notify their corrections agents or law enforcement whenever any of their registration information changes.


“The Scott County Sheriff’s Office takes an aggressive role in verifying predatory offender registration and making that information available to its residents,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “We want to follow the law and make sure that everyone is aware and knowledgeable about this person moving into the community to hopefully ease anxieties and fears.”


Please refer to the Notification Fact Sheets (below) for further information.  Please note that abuse of this information to threaten, harass or intimidate a registered offender is unacceptable and such acts could be charged as a crime.  Such abuses could potentially end the ability of law enforcement to provide these notifications.
