HERE IN MICHIGAN THE SEX OFFENDER ISSUE IS ALARMING. THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM IS NOT AS TOUGH ON CONVICTING SEX OFFENDERS AS THEY SHOULD. I RECENTLY FOUND OUT OVER THE INTERNET THAT A SEX OFFENDER HAS MOVED INTO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD. WE ARE PART OF A NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH PROGRAM AND THIS ISSUE IS DISTRESSFULL. THIS OFFENDER HAS A VERY HIGH RATE OF REOCCURENCE AS MENTIONED ON HER SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY. THEN WHY WOULD THE PRISONS LET HER OUT UPON A HELPLESS PUBLIC IF SO. WE DID A BACK GROUND ON THIS WOMAN ONCE WE FOUND OUT SHE WAS LIVING IN THE NEIGHBOR HOOD. HER CRIMINAL CAREER IS A LONG ONE. HER NAME IS AMBER RENEE BUNNELL. AND SHE HAS A LIST OF ALIASIS AS LONG AS ONE CAN GET. SHE HAS BEEN ARRESTED FOR SEXUAL OFFENCES AND REOCCURRING OFFENSES AS WELL. HER BACK GROUND ALSO STATES THAT SHE WAS CONVICTED OF PUCURRING WHICH IS PROSTITUTION. AS WELL AS BIGAMY AND POLOGAMY CHARGES AS WELL. HER SEX OFFENDER AND BACK GROUND REPORT STATES THAT SHE HAS LIVED IN 15 DIFFRENT ADDRESSES OVER THE LAST 1 YEAR AND A HALF. BUT DOSENT LIVE THERE LONG ENOUGH TO MAKE IT A RESIDENCE. HER REPORT ALSO STATES THAT SHE HAS BEEN ARRESTED AND SENT BACK TO PRISON TWICE ON FAILURE TO REGISTER AS A SEX OFFENDER AND MAINTAIN A PERMINANTE ADDRESS. OUR NEIGHBORHOOD IS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THIS WOMANS PRESENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY. WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY THAT SHE WILL PREY UPON OUR CHILDREN IN THE AREA, SINCE HER CLASSIFICATION STATES HER AS A RECURRING OFFENDER. WE LIVE IN THE WEST LAND MICH. AREA AND THERE IS ENOUGH CRIME HERE BUT NOW ITS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD. SEX OFFENDERS ATTRACT OTHER OFFENDERS AND AS WE MIGHT NOT KNOW THE WHOLE HOUSE MAY BE A WHOLE SEX OFFENDER RESIDENCE, SEX OFFENDERS RELATE TO EACH OTHER AND THEY ARE EXCEPTED IN THERE OWN COMMUNITY BECAUSE THEY ALL KNOW THE CONDITIONS OF EACH OTHERS CASES. THIS WOMAN IS DANGEROUS AND WE DONT WANT TO TAKE THE CHANCES TO FIND OUT. HER BACK GROUND STATES THAT HER AND HER FIRST HUSBAND DID THIS SEX ACT UPON THERE OWN CHILD. THIS IS DISTASTEFULL AND UNETHICAL AS A PARENT. HER MDOC NUMBER IS 471929 AND WE FOUND HER JAIL NUMBER AS 304449. EVERY THING ABOUT HER IS DANGEROUS WE ARE GOING TO DISCUSS THIS AT OUR NEXT NEIGHBOR HOOD MEETING. THE PAROLE SCREENING PROCESS IS NOT STRICT ENOUGH BEFORE THEY CONCIDER PAROLING A PERSON THAT REOFFENDS ALL THE TIME.

sounds like she needs to be moved out of the united states where she is no threat to anyone but herself. we have enough crime here and she just adds to it. i have heard of her name before i think she got fired at a taco bell store in white lake for trying to set up a date with a under aged boy that frequents there. i had a friend that also worked there when she did, when i heard this article i ran her name on the web site and her face poped up. its a small world. i use to pick my friend up there and i remembered seeing her there on a couple of ocassions. good luck trying to get her out of your neighborhood sex offenders have rights to i guess,

yeah she was married to a well respected and noted bounty hunter . he should had done his reasearch on her before they got married. but when you love some one that is the last thing that you would think to do. why do people have to disrespect the one that they are with. there are way to many dangerous sex offenders in michigan. michigan holds the highest rate of offenders. sounds like she cant be trusted around children or adults. sounds like everyone that she is in contact with becomes a victim in one way or another. my husband was a convicted offender as well i didnt know this for about four years after we were married. so i know how this guy feels betrayed and confused. sounds like she has a pattern that she is stuck in and a routine of house shacking. women like her have a history of always wanting to get married to some one after she meets them. that would be her m.o. sounds like the streets would be safer without her victimizing everyone in her path. all we can do is pray for them?

no the parole system is not strict enough. your right this is a issue that the state of michigan should address . all offenders are dangerous and most of them claim that they were forced to do what they did or they are a victim to, they always have a excuse for what they did. oh well we will have to be on our guards and watch out for them, that is the hardest part we cant always know what our children are doing until most of the time it is to late.

men are always going to try to be with younger girls thats the way it always is. but when a woman does it there is actually no excuse for it at all. especially the way this woman sounds. if she was caught once before how many times has she done it before and was never caught. in my book there all predators and they are all not trusted in society. 90% of them are recurring offenders like a loaded time bomb when and where it will happen again is the hardest part. take her off the streets along with 50 million other of them as well. hopefully she hasnt terrorized another community yet. trying to keep track of each offender is tough. they change there addresses so frequently that they dont even know where there going. the jail is the best place for them they call them sex offenders to make them feel better but in the long run there still child molesters under another name.

Amber bunnell is bad news. She been locked up off and on for years. She and her husband commited a crime against his child. She married someone else and she didn't have to spend any time in prison. She treatened him with a knife and again she got away with it. She is now pregnant with her 5th child with another man who is in his early 20. She will end up leaving him and having that child taken away as have her other 4 kids

It is also true that she is stealing the name of her new boyfriend Jimmy Hamilton's dead 18 month old neice.The child is a girl to be named Pristine Baughey if Im correct.She makes herself out to be a victom on facebook & is living in a trailer park there in Michigan with Jimmy.He cant see the wrong in this woman & his sisters are threatening to harm that baby on her facebook.Once I found out what she was I blocked her,I have NO LOVE for that type of person.P.S. white boy read the part of your bible that says you shall not lead a child into darkness I can 100% garuntee you that no he does not love CHOMO'S too.

yes amber bunnell is probably the most sinister person that walks the planet. she is not trusted in society i know this woman and what she is capable of doing. she really did her second husband horrible. i guess that he had a lot of pull with the parole board and got her out of trouble a few times and put it all on the line for her. but in return she never told him that she was still married to her first sex offender husband. some one should get in touch with this guy that she is with and give him the news about her . he is young and caught up with a woman that knows how to manipulate a young person well she is very good at it. she also has 4 kids from 4 diffrent fathers and does not have custody with none of them. and the bad part of the whole thing is that in 2010 she tested positive for hiv at the health dept. because my sister took her there and amber was crying her eyes out, if you look on the web site and run her name she has 7 diffrent addresses that she has lived at over the last 4 years. now she is on felony habitual second probation for bigamy to her second husband. and cant get off probation because she cant pay thousands of dollars in fines so they keep extending her probation each year. yes she always puts her self as a victim but never conciders the people that she has victimized over the years, there are not many people that like her and the ones that do know her are very much aware of who she is, i cant wait until people figure out who and what she is, it will all come out. i know a person that caught her once befor a few years ago that told every one that she likes kiddie porn she is nothing more than a low life and should not be any where around a child especially her own.

i lived in a apartment complex with her. across the hall and she was always telling me what she was doing behind her second husbands back when he wasnt home. he was a very sweet guy and i had nothing but respect for him. but i could see in his eyes that he was hurting mabey he allready knew what she was doing but i never told him. sometimes what you dont know wont hurt you. he use to sit and talk about how he loved her and behind his back she would tell me how she was just using him until someone else came along. i wish that i would had met him before she did he was sweet and nice and never once ever tryed to hit on me that is how much he loved her aint that love,

if you all hate her that much and know what bunnell is then you should contact her probation officer i live and work in pontiac and i also found out who her po is. i work at the county so it wasnt hard to find out. her name is darbyshire and she works out of the 1200 building. give a little info to her po she mite be interested. there is to many sex offenders out there and what i hear about this woman she should had been given a life setence a long time ago. she sounds like a work of art.

just for the record amber bunnell is not actually living in westland like her sex offender registry says. she is using the west land address but is actually living in rochester. so that is a violation to the conditions of her probation and falsely not giving true information on her sex offender stipulations.

if you dont really like amber renee bunnell on face book showing off being pregnant. just report her to face book and look up how to report her because by michigan law a convicted sex offender cannot have a face book account at all. just give face book her full name and the web page that shows her offense it wont be hard to find her just google up her name under convicted sex offenders in michigan and type her name in. give all the information to face book. just log on google and type face book violations report a sex offender. they will boot her off the entire web site, unless she uses another name. in the state of michigan she can have a email account but not a face book account. it would be worth getting her off the use of the internet especially facebook.

some one should tell this guy all about amber bunnell. we have the been verified back ground check. and we ran her name off and she was convicted with her first husband not her second husband for having sex with there own kid. that is absolutely discusting and it says she was put in prison for it. her first husband got in trouble for it to and he is also on the sex offender registry, it also says that she was convicted of bigamy and pologamy and caught another felony for that. i guess she never told her second husband that she was still married. chanches are that he probably didnt know that she was a sex offender as well. sounds like the ideal woman to have a baby with and trust her behind ones back. she will be judged by god. comitting crimes against children is the worst crime of all and if it is a sex crime that is the lowest of all,
