The local news did a story about Sex Offenders about a week ago. During the story they mentioned a website,, where you can enter your address and it will map out any that are in your area.


The only problem I have with sites like this is that it doesn't give you a lot of details into the nature of the crime of the sex offender. I know a guy that is on the registered sex offender list due to a statutory rape charge, he was 18 and she was 15. They both were in High School and the sex was consensual. In fact they are married today. On his record it states victim under <18, that’s all.

Other then that, I think these lists and services are a useful tool for concerned parents. If you have kids, or are just curious to see if your neighbors are perverts, plug in your address and see who are the people in your neighborhood.

Yea. I know a person who should not be on the registry also. I'm sure there alot of them. Something needs to be done. We need to know who to protect our children from. Not just normal people who get caught up in the witch hunt.

There is one a couple blocks down from me in my neighborhood and he SHOULD be on the registry. At least I know he's there. Its the ones nobody knows about yet that scare me.

I'm relieved to see that there's only one living on my block... and it's not me :-)
