Authorities contacted registered sex offenders who are on parole and probation throughout the county and in areas including Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Grover Beach, Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, Nipomo, Oceano, and San Miguel.

34 people were found to be in compliance with the terms of their probation or parole.

Three people were arrested for probation or parole violations.

According to Megan’s Law, Okun was previously convicted of possession of obscene materials that depicted a minor in a sexual act.
