Sexual Offender Information
On July 1, 1997 a new law went into
effect concerning Sex Offender Registration and Notification.
Under that law, convicted sex offenders must register for a period of
time with their local county sheriffs. Sex offenders are
classified as 1) sexually oriented offenders, 2) habitual sex offenders,
and 3) sexual predators. The local sheriff's office is required to
notify various entities when a sexual predator or a habitual sex
offender, who the court determines is subject to community notification,
moves into a specific geographical location.
