"I KNOW A PERSON WHO IS A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER AND THAT PERSON LIVES IN DREW COUNTY. WHY IS THAT PERSON NOT LISTED AS A SEX OFFENDER ON YOUR WEB SITE?"
State law allows level two thru four offenders to be listed on sites like ours. A level two can only be listed if the offender is over 18 years of age and the victim was under 14. This means no level ones and only certain level twos can be listed on our site. Also, a person, once convicted, goes through a state ordered assessment which attempts to determine the offenders likelihood of re-offending. To answer your question, there are three reasons the person you know is not listed: (1) the person is a level one and can't be listed, (2) the person is a level two that can't be listed, or (3) the person was recently convicted and has not completed the state assessment that assigns them an offender level (assessments after conviction usually take approximately six months).
