FALMOUTH - Falmouth police have issued a Level 3 sex offender notice for Richard A. Monterio. Monterio, 45, is living at 85A Grace Court in East Falmouth. There is no work address listed for him.

Monterio is white, 5'9", 170 lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was convicted of three counts of rape of a child with force in 2006, indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 in 2002 and indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or older in 2002, according to the state Sex Offender Registry Board (SORB). Monterio is not wanted by police. He has been designated a Level 3 sex offender by the Sex Offender Registry Board (SORB). The board designates Level 3 sex offenders as being most likely to re-offend and are therefore considered a greater risk to the community. For more information about sex offender classification, visit the SORB website here.

SORB has recently made changes to their website and now includes statistics by town/city for Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 sex offenders living and working in a community. Sex offenders who list the community as their secondary address are also included. Sex offenders registered in Falmouth are as follows, according to SORB:

  • Level 3 sex offenders: 14 living, 1 secondary address, 2 working
  • Level 2 sex offenders: 25 living, 4 secondary address, 15 working
  • Level 1 sex offenders: 12 living, 1 secondary address, 5 working

Level 2 and Level 3 sex offenders are required by Massachusetts law to verify their registration data in person at the police department in their town, according to SORB.
