sex offender registry
Allowing juveniles to seek removal from Missouri’s sex offender registry is a target for a possible veto override when state lawmakers return to the state Capitol in several weeks.
More than one thousand registered sex offenders could be taken off the Missouri registry under the legislation.
Like the sex offender registry, it includes names, addresses, employment places, schools attended and photos for offenders for up to 10 years after their release from prison.
St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch says to an extent, he agrees.
The bill would exempt people from registering if they have been convicted of some non-contact offenses, such as indecent exposure.
