FORT SMITH (KFSM) — Two brothers who are convicted sex predators, are each facing a felony charge for failing to comply with sex offender regulations, according to Fort Smith police.

Rickey Lee Parker, 52, was arrested Monday (Feb. 13) for failing to comply with the Child/Sex Offender Registration Act, according to the Fort Smith Police Department.

Rickey Parker is a sexually violent convicted predator and was sentenced in 2006 to 10 years in prison at the Varner Unit in southern Arkansas, after he was convicted of felony second-degree sexual assault for forcible sexual contact with a 26-year-old woman, court records state.

He is a Level 4 sex offender, which refers to a person who has been adjudicated guilty of a sex offense or acquitted on the grounds of mental disease or defect of a sex offense that makes the person likely to engage in additional predatory sexual offenses. Level 4 is the highest level of sexual predator.

Everett Leon Parker, 54, was also arrested Monday on the same charge as Rickey Parker, according to police.

Everett Parker is a Level 3 sex offender, and was convicted of felony second-degree sexual assault involving a 4-year-old boy, court records state.

Both were being held Wednesday (Feb. 15) in the Sebastian County Detention Center without bond, according to the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office.
