Two sexually violent predators will be living within Colorado Springs city limits. Officials with the police department released information about Rarlin M. Barbin and Rosendo Garza on Tuesday.
Rarlin Michael Barbin will be on unsupervised release and has moved to a new address at 319 University Drive. His criminal history reveals that in El Paso County he was convicted of attempted sexual assault on a child in 2001, offenses relating to marijuana-Distribution in 2002, and failure to register as a sex offender in 2004.
Barbin was also convicted in 1998 of assault with intent to do great bodily harm, less than murder, and escape. That conviction was in Oakland County, Michigan. Barbin is described as a black male, 36, 5’10” tall, 185 lbs, black hair, and brown eyes.
