Juvenile Sex Offenders Stay In School, Parents Kept In Dark

here's no telling how many juvenile sex offenders are in South Carolina public schools, because only a handful are required to publicly disclose their status.

According to a SLED document concerning juvenile sex offenders, only those convicted of serious sexual crimes (i.e. first degree criminal sexual conduct) must disclose their offender status.

Those convicted of less serious crimes, such as lesser degrees of criminal sexual conduct, do not have to disclose on the public registry. Even when they turn 18, their status does not become public -- unless they're convicted of another crime.

They would, however, in certain circumstances be required to notify law enforcement or other victims, which could include schools, daycares, businesses, etc. But those "victims" are in no way allowed to disclose to others, like parents or other students.

"The administrators know it. That student's teachers would know it, but federal and state privacy laws say that the general public can't," said Jim Foster, the spokesman for the SC Department of Education.

BS... less criminal juveniles should be protected in an insane society based on laws that increase exponentially and strident law enforcement.

I am not sure what you are calling BS on, minors are always protected even when they perpetrate crimes against other minors.
