Mason County Sex Offender Arrested while on Parole

An anonymous tip led police to a sex offender on parole who wasn’t registered and breaking the law.    

Mason county deputies arrested the man at a campground in Scottville Friday night.

They say Joseph Yennior was living in a tent there and using a Facebook account under a different name and that is not allowed. 

Yennior has not been formally charged yet for the sex offender violation.

The Mason County sheriff says he was convicted of first degree criminal sexual conduct.

They say a tip left on the Offender Watch helped them find the man.
