SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

New York state unable to find hundreds of sex offenders

It is important for all states to know where sex offenders are living at all times. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. For this reason, some states often run into issues keeping tabs on those who are registered as a sex offender.

Our New York readers will want to pay close attention to this story, as it could have a direct impact on them. New York has lost track of 467 convicted sex offenders, which includes both child molesters as well as rapists. This is hard to fathom, being as state laws requires these people to register each year to be included in the Megan's Law database.

Throughout the state, records show that authorities have obtained arrest warrants for 200 of the offenders.

While this number may not seem very big, it is never a good thing when a sex offender is lost in the system. For example, there are 1,523 registered sex offenders on Long Island. That being said, the whereabouts of 15 of these people is listed as unknown by the Division of Criminal Justice Services.

Laura Ahearn of Parents for Megan's Law and the Crime Victims Center noted that "for their victims, it's terrifying to know the offender who victimized them is nowhere to be found." This shows why it is so important for authorities to know where these people are at all times.

Although the number of missing sex offenders is small when compared to the 36,410 registered throughout the state, even one person who is not accounted for can cause trouble.
