While investigating a Brewton man on a sexual notification act violation investigators discovered he had possibly committed another sexual abuse crime that resulted his is arrest.

Shawn Michael Evanuk, 45, was charged with sexual abuse I. During a bond hearing Tuesday afternoon, District Judge Jeff White set bond at $500,000.

Evanuk apparently moved from Covington County to Escambia County and began living at 3994 Old Castleberry Road, Lot 7.

Sheriff's Inv. Bruce Shue said registered sex offenders have three days to report if they move to a new residence. Shue said Evanuk came to register the address and told him he'd only been there for a few days, but an investigation revealed he had been living there for more than a month. Evanuk was also out on bond on a pending theft of property I charge in Covington County.

According to sheriff's office reports, Evanuk was arrested on April 19 on the SORNA violation and released on bond later that day.

A report was filed alleging on April 6, Evanuk made forcible sexual contact with an adult female in Escambia County. During the bond hearing the prosecution claimed he grabbed the woman's breasts without her consent.

Evanuk was arrested on the sexual abuse I warrant on April 30.

The sheriff's office stated Evanuk has a long criminal history of sex charges, theft of property, burglary, domestic violence and SORNA violations in seven states.

On Sept. 29, 1995, Evanuk was convicted of sexual assault III in Jefferson County, Colorado and was required to register as an adult sex offender.

The sheriff's office determined Evanuk established his residence on Old Castleberry Road on or about March 18.

A stipulation of Evanuk's bond, if he is released, is he is to have no contact with the alleged victim. Evanuk told Judge White he doesn't know who she is and was surprised when he got arrested.
