Sex offender fails to check in

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies are looking for a registered sex offender who has allegedly failed to check in as required by law.

David Vanburen Finch, 42, was convicted of second-degree rape in Wagoner County in 2008, according to Deputy Dexter Scott. Finch, of Park Hill, is required to register his address every 90 days, but last did so in October 2013.

State officials sent Scott a letter about Finch’s alleged failure to check in. Scott said he went to Finch’s last known home address, but could get no response.

Scott’s report will be submitted to the District Attorney’s Office, and prosecutors will decide whether to file charges against Finch for failing to register.
