MO: Woman discovers sex offender using her address for registry, has to fight to remove it

    I’m curious if she’s a supporter of the registry?

      One thing is for sure: If she was, she’s not anymore. 😉

        “One thing is for sure: If she was, she’s not anymore.”
        LOL, funny and +1.

        “Officers even made a visit to her home.”
        She’s probably not too fond of compliance checks, either.

        This whole thing is too comical. Now if only a bunch of AL RCs would list all sorts of addresses as their new SORA law mandates. Total corruption of the database would be wonderful.

    “We called the sheriff’s department again, where someone said the office was aware of the problem, but had to wait until the prosecutor filed charges against McNish for not registering as a sexual offender before it could remove the address from the registry.”

    ^That delay was just the sheriff’s department covering their own asses! If the address was delisted right away on the honor system and this person committed a crime in THAT neighborhood, it would have been a PR nightmare and made the local authorities look inept.

    It just goes to show that just being listed on the registry implies that you are a public safety liability.

    All I have to say is HA! Stuff like this will help the kill registry. I hope it will become the norm.

    It’s ok ma’am, it’s not punishment.

    That is funny. Someone not required to register has to fight to get her home address off the registry. Irony?

    ….

    Homefacts and City data both have him listed.

    • AlexO

      I loath these websites! My names is the first result in a Google search. It’s under the Homefacts site. This needs to be ruled illegal if for no other reason than it blatantly allows RC’s to use Homefacts and others to find other RC’s to collude with, which is the reason why RC’s can’t access the registry on Megan’s Law. How can this loophole be allowed to exist? (In case anyone thinks I’m being serious about colluding, I’m not. I’m just using pointing out a flaw in the system that should be exploited to shut these sites down.)
