BY: STAFF REPORT | BocaNewsNow.com
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Christopher Koch, the sexual offender living in the upscale, gated community of Lotus on Lyons Road just north of Clint Moore in Boca Raton, allegedly traveled to the Dominican Republic without telling the Florida Department of Law Enforcement that he was leaving the country. That’s a violation of Koch’s lifetime requirement to repeatedly tell law enforcement where he is and what he’s doing, and led to his arrest on July 7th.
According documents obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, Koch never told authorities that he had a passport, and additionally never told them that he was traveling to the Dominican Republic on June 17th. Authorities apparently found out, involved federal agents, and determined Koch was supposed to be on a return flight to Miami on June 31st. He allegedly never showed for that flight, according to the affidavit below. It’s unclear when Koch did return. He was booked into jail on July 7th.
Public records reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com indicate that Koch pleaded guilty in May of 2006 to a charge of indecent aggravated assault on a person under age 16. He was in his 30s at the time. The assault occurred in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Koch also pleaded guilty to a count of “corruption of minors,” and ”aggravated indecent assault.” He was apparently living in Malvern, Pennsylvania — a Philadelphia suburb — at the time. Koch attended Villanova University and St. Joseph’s, both in the Philadelphia area.
Koch was booked into the Palm Beach County jail and held for more than a day before being released on his own recognizance. He now faces two charges related to sexual offender registration in Florida. Property records show that he owns a $1.2M home in Lotus.Koch
