Shawn Corbit, 42, of Burlington, Vermont was arrested on Thursday, November 17, 2016 in Burlington, Vermont when confronted by Deputy U.S. Marshals. Corbit was wanted by the Burlington Police Department / Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations (CUSI) after his whereabouts became unknown during a sex offender registry compliance check conducted by the CUSI in July 2016.
On November 14, 2016 CUSI contacted the VVOTF and requested assistance in locating and arresting Corbit, as his whereabouts remained unknown since July 2016. Information suggested that Corbit may have possibly fled the county or even the state.

Corbit is listed on the Vermont Sex Offender Registry’s Website, indicating that he is required to register for a Felonious Sexual Assault, dating back to November 1995. This conviction occurred in the State of New Hampshire. See the below link to the Vermont Sex Offender Registry’s Website.
Corbit has a lengthy criminal history, to include several failures to register arrests and convictions.
Corbit was in the Chittenden Vermont Superior court on November 17, 2016 on the above listed arrest warrant. The outcome of this hearing was not available at the time of this release.
