Missouri Considers Letting Some People Leave the Sex Offender List

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) — A bill being discussed in Missouri’s capitol would lessen the amount of time some people have to spend on the sex offender registry.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch says to an extent, he agrees.

“Certainly some cases should be taken off the sex offender list after a appropriate period of time, but some should never come off.”

He says in the case of indecent exposure or other non-sex related crimes that could land someone on the registry, should be able to be removed.

But McCulloch says he would also like a judge to be involved in the process of saying who can come off and when.

The bill heads to the Senate after one more vote in the House.

Legislation: HB1743
