Locals Call California’s Sex Offender Registry Into Question
SACRAMENTO- The recent re-arrest of registered a sex offender has neighbors calling California's sex offender registry into question. Sex offenders are required by law to register their name, photo and address online at meganslaw.ca.gov. A disclaimer on the website says The Department of Justice does not assess the specific risk that any convicted sex offender on the site will commit another offense. However, the website does have a Risk Assessment Score. Another disclaimer says that score determines the statistical probability that an offender will commit another sexual offense.
