Alabama Cracks Down on Unregistered Sex Offenders
(2007-12-12)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Alabama has begun a crackdown on unregistered sex offenders that has located 14 people who failed to file their current addresses with law enforcement.

That's out of 438 sex offenders in Alabama without known addresses.

Governor Bob Riley and state, federal and county law enforcement officials announced the crackdown yesterday in Montgomery.

State law requires freed sex offenders to register their addresses with local law enforcement. But state Public Safety Director Chris Murphy said some of the 9,500 people on Alabama's sex offender registry don't update their addresses when they move.

The crackdown is targeting 20 offenders whose crimes involved children.
