Pierce County deputies are asking for the public's help to find convicted rapist Marvin Lee Easley. The Level III sex offender has a warrant for his arrest for failure to register as a sex offender. The 53-year-old was convicted for rape in the third degree in King County in 2011. Court documents show the victim was a developmentally disabled woman.

"When vulnerable people are victims, it makes it a higher priority for us to find the suspects," said Det. Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff's Department . "This guy is known to target women who are strangers to him and we want to do everything we can to get him into custody." 

Easley was convicted in 2011 for raping a woman in Allen County, Ind. This isn't the first time he's been accused of failure to register. He was convicted for the same crime in Pierce County in 2008.

If you can tell deputies where to find him, Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County will pay you a cash reward of up to $1,000. Call the hot line anonymously at 1 (800) 222-TIPS. This is one of the cases featured this weekend on Washington's Most Wanted airing Friday night at 11 p.m. on Q13 FOX and Saturday night at 9:30 p.m. on JOEtv and 10:30 p.m. on Q13 FOX.
