Sex Offender Registry
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Some state lawmakers want changes to
Michigan's sex offender registry.
A House Republican proposal would make the registry retroactive
to include some offenders who were convicted of crimes before 1995.
That's when the law creating a registry took effect.
Republican lawmaker David Law of Oakland County's Commerce
Township is behind the plan. He says people convicted of first- and
second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim under 13 should
be on the registry no matter when the offense happened.
Law says those offenders are a relatively high risk to repeat
their crimes.
Another Republican bill would ban convicted sex offenders out on
parole from handing out candy to children on Halloween.
