EL PASO COUNTY — The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is alerting residents of a Sexually Violent Predator who moved to Colorado Springs.

The Sheriff's Office says 46-years-old Karriem Abdul Lawson has moved 6470 Lonsdale Drive.

Lawson is described as a black male, 46 years old, 5’9” tall, 155 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes.

Authorities say Lawson’s criminal history shows that he was convicted of Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse (2 counts) in 2003 in Pennsylvania.

He is one of six Sexually Violent Predators currently registered with the El Paso Sheriff’s Office who reside in this community.

Under Colorado law, law enforcement agencies are required to notify the community when a SVP moves into the area.
