City to be home for 1 more sex offender

Allan Joeseph Cook, 34, is a high risk, registered sex offender who will be living at 1019 5th Ave. Northwest No. 4 in Valley City.

Cook was convicted Feb. 1, 2002 in Barnes County District Court of two Class C Felony counts of sexual assault for engaging in sexual acts with three juvenile females, ages 15 to 17 years old.

According to the North Dakota Sex Offender Website,, Cook's "high" risk level status means he is among offenders who statistically are the most likely to commit another sexual offense. High risk offenders have typically committed more than one offense, have refused to engage in sex offender treatment, or have engaged in behaviors that contribute to an elevated level of risk.

Cook is a white male, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 195 pounds with blond hair and green eyes, whose former residence is listed at 221, 9th Street South in Casselton.

Cook joins four other registered sex offenders living in the city: Tyler Wayne Delmore at 135 2nd Street Southeast, Russell Wayne Stephens at 206, 4th Street Southwest, Jesse Dwight Tabor at 461 7th Avenue Northwest and William Jason Wall at 143 13th Avenue Southeast.
