2 sex offenders register in Spokane Co.

Two sex offenders considered likely to reoffend have registered in Spokane County.

Jesus Lopez, 35, (right) is living in the 12000 block of E. Marietta in Spokane Valley.

He was released from prison in 2005 after being convicted of first-degree rape in Grant County in 1994, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

His victim was a 27-year-old female who was not a stranger, the Sheriff's Office said.

Christopher Lee Godwin, 29, (left) is living as a transient in Spokane County.

He was released from prison in September 2009 after serving 18 months for an indecent liberties conviction in Spokane County, the Sheriff's Office said. His victim was a 14-year-old female stranger whom he sexually assaulted after persuading her to visit his motel room, police said.

Godwin is being supervised by the state Department of Corrections.

Lopez and Godwin are level 3 sex offenders, the classification considered most likely to reoffend.

Neither is wanted by law enforcement, but authorities want the public to be aware of their presence.
