I looked at our state and county sites this morning too. In Florida we have DOB, photos, current address and the crime(s)they've committed. It's a very thorough data base. What was startling to me is how MANY there are in our county...in all kinds of neighborhoods. Unbelievable.

Checked out my zip here in Wa State (at the state website, not the one you sited), and it is amazing! They show pics, and give somewhat complete addresses, and even a yahoo map with their location highlighted. Very eye opening!

It really is crazy. A few years ago, my county notified me that a level III registered sex offender was moving onto my block. He had 2 priors for molesting female children and 1 prior for breaking into a woman's home and raping her at gunpoint. The block he was moving to had: A) A church daycare with outside playground B) A middleschool C) Three single women living alone, myself included. I checked, and there was no restriction in this county for how close a registered sex offender can live to schools and playgrounds. Needless to say, I moved.

There are 33 in my county, well 33 that have been convicted because I know there is others that our legal system seems to not want to give justice to the victims.
A lot of paperwork and evidence seems to just get up and walk away.
5 are listed as child molesters , 2 more with Stat. rape.
Some of these scum bags live by schools.One lives on the same street as one of my sisters.

There is one woman on the list, has the same last name as another, with different address, but probably connected.


Everyone that checks, keep in mind that the same could be true of your area and that some just haven't been caught yet at all.


Mo sex offenders

Can search by name, zipcode, or county.
Some counties have their own lists/sites.

I just checked my zipcode. There are 99 registered offenders. I must pass at least 10 of their homes on one street on my way to the highway.

Worse that than, my address is 3876 and there is a sex offender at 3447. I think I am going to be sick.

My sympathies. I remember all too well that sick feeling. I really did have to move after I started being unable to sleep at night. I mean, this guy was convicted of breaking into a home at night and raping a woman at gunpoint. He had served his time in a state mental institution where he was diagnosed as a sexual psychopath. But, hey, he'd paid his debt to society so they released him with the caveat that he was highly likely to re-offend. Something really needs to change.

Boy you beat me. There are just over thirty offenders in my zip code, including one who lives in my apartment complex. (Multiple offenses on children under the age of fourteen)

When I lived in another town the police left a Megan's Law flyer on my door step to inform me that a child molester had moved in. We held protests in front of the apartment complex until he was forced to leave. I looked him up on the new web site. I was pleased to find that he is currently incarcerated.

Very disturbing. We have 3 just in our zipcode, and several hundred in our suburban Philadelphia county. Since the PA registry doesn't give addresses, I took a quick look at an online directory and could only find a local address for one of the three guys in our zipcode. Who knows about the other two - living with relatives maybe? I know they're not next door, but that's about all I know.

I was very surprised at the sheer number of convicted offenders. When I think of the ones who haven't been convicted but are out there, I have to resist the temptation to call my son and his friend to get out out of the back yard and play inside . . .

As kids we had a lot of freedom to ride our bikes, play in vacant lots, and just disappear for hours until we were hungry. Our children have been cheated of this freedom and innocence, partly by monsters such as these.

What site was that? Do they show pics for non-level 3 offenders? Our Pierce County site only shows pics for level 3's.

Hi! I just did a google search as follows: 'wa state sex offenders' and the first site that came up was http://ml.waspc.org. It required that you enter some personal info before being allowed access, and did say that some computers might be monitored. It was a sheriff's website, if I remember correctly. Tried to go back to it this morning when I got your email, but now I can't connect. Anyways, it showed pics of level 2 and 3 offenders. About 99% of them looked like the kind of people whom you would cross the street to avoid. Like someone else said, why does Martha Stewart get an ankle bracelet, but these degenerates don't? Who is more likely to re-offend? Makes me sick.

Mama

Thank you so much!! I am trying to check it out, now. It's really scary and I completely agree about how disgusting it is that Martha gets monitored but these people don't.

I'd like to know why PA doesn't give addresses. We're still in the dark.

One lives on the same street as one of my sisters.

Was your sister aware the sex offender lives on her street?

She probably does. She has seen the list.

We are only too aware that there is a bunch of scumbags around this area, on the list or not.
