Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Rochester Police Department today issued a community notification about a predatory offender who moved to Rochester today on a provisional discharge from the Minnesota Sex Offender Program.

The notification indicates 63-year-old Dale William Hodge is transitioning to a residence on the Olmsted County Campus near the Federal Medical Center in southeast Rochester. He is considered a Level 2 predatory offender, which means officials believe he presents a moderate risk for committing additional offenses.
