The Colorado Springs Police Department will make all reasonable efforts to ensure that Lehmkuhl registers as a sex offender and that he understands his responsibilities as such.

Lehmkuhl has also been convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, DWAI (2), and Traffic Offenses.  He is not on parole or probation.

Lehmkuhl is currently registered at 2237 East Boulder Street #10 Colorado Springs, CO 80907.  He is described as being a white male, 65 years old, 5’10” tall, 140 lbs, with gray hair and blue eyes.

Lehmkuhl is one of eleven (11) “Sexually Violent Predators” currently registered with the Colorado Springs Police Department who reside in this community. The Colorado Springs Police Department takes his presence in our community very seriously and is intent on insuring he conducts himself in a lawful manner and that our citizens remain safe and aware.
