Arizona

The purpose of this site is to provide information to the public concerning the location of sex offenders within Arizona. This site is NOT intended to supplant the community notification process, but rather, it allows the criminal justice community to promote public awareness concerning the potential threat that sex offenders pose to Arizona citizens. An informed public is a safer public!

Realizing that it is impossible to notify every citizen about a sex offender's presence in their community, this site will empower you to obtain information and take the appropriate precautions. Furnishing the public with information regarding convicted sex offenders is a critical step towards encouraging the public to protect themselves from potential future acts.

WARNING: This site does not contain information on all convicted sex offenders! Information is only provided for sex offenders with risk assessment scores of Level 2 (Intermediate) or Level 3 (High)!

The Arizona Department of Public Safety updates this information regularly, however, you are cautioned that the information contained on this site may not reflect the current residence, status, or other information regarding the offender! If you believe that any of the information found in these records is in error, please send us your comments.

THE INFORMATION PROVIDED ON THIS SITE IS INTENDED FOR COMMUNITY SAFETY PURPOSES ONLY AND SHOULD NOT BE USED TO THREATEN, INTIMIDATE, OR HARASS. MISUSE OF THIS INFORMATION MAY RESULT IN CRIMINAL PROSECUTION.

Colorado

The following categories of high-risk registered sex offenders are required to be posted on this website, pursuant to 16-22-111 C.R.S. This website does not list all convicted sex offenders in Colorado.

Sexually Violent Predators (SVP's) - SVP's are considered the highest risk sex offenders. Currently, most SVP's are in prison. They are only posted on this site when they are living in the community, either under criminal justice supervision or having completed their sentence. SVP's are the only category of sex offenders subject to Community Notification.

Multiple Offenses - These sex offenders have two or more adult felony convictions for unlawful sexual behavior or crimes of violence.

Failed to Register - These sex offenders have not registered or have a history of failing to register, as required, with their local law enforcement agency and are subject to additional criminal charges for their non-compliance.

*A sex offender may meet the criteria of more than one of the above categories and therefore may be posted on more than one list on this site.

District of Columbia

The Sex Offender Registration Act of 1999 authorizes the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) to establish and maintain the sex offender registry for the District of Columbia. The Law authorizes the Metropolitan Police Department to release sex offender information to the public.

The Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency updates this information regularly in an effort to assure that the registry is complete and accurate. However, the Metropolitan Police Department and the District of Columbia cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Data contained in the registry may be primarily based upon information furnished by the offender (registrant). This information can change quickly. Offenders may have moved and failed to notify CSOSA as required by law.

Persons who have been arrested or charged with a sex offense are not required to register unless the arrest or charge results in a conviction or a finding of not guilty by reason of insanity. Juveniles adjudicated (not charged or convicted as adults) of sexual abuse offenses are not required to register and will not appear on the registry.

The information that is provided through this web site is an open record.

Exemption from Civil Liablity. Section 18-8325 provides the following exemption from civil liability:

No person or governmental entity, other than those specifically charged in this chapter with a duty to collect information under this chapter regarding registered sexual offenders, has a duty to inquire, investigate or disclose any information regarding registered sexual offenders.

Illinois

The Sex Offender Registry was created in response to the Illinois Legislature's determination to facilitate access to publicly available information about persons convicted of sex offenses. ISP has not considered or assessed the specific risk of re-offense with regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion on this Registry and has made no determination that any individual included in the Registry is currently dangerous. Individuals included on the Registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction record and Illinois state law. The primary purpose of providing this information is to make the information easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individuals.

Anyone who uses this information to commit a criminal act against another person is subject to criminal prosecution.

ISP updates this information regularly in an effort to assure that the information on the Registry is complete and accurate; however, ISP makes no representation, express or implied, that the information contained on the Registry is accurate.

The information contained on the Registry can change quickly so the current residence, status or other information regarding an offender may not be accurate. Though much of the information is of record, some information is gathered from the offenders themselves who may fail to provide any or accurate information. Additional information and verification can be obtained from the local law enforcement agency where the sex offender resides.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

The information on the Registry refers only to sex offenses and/or certain crimes against children and may not reflect the entire criminal history of a particular individual. A complete public record of Illinois criminal history can be obtained from the Illinois State Police Bureau of Identification.

The information contained on this site does not imply listed individuals will commit a specific type of crime in the future, nor does it imply that if a future crime is committed by a listed individual what the nature of that crime may be. ISP makes no representation as to any offender's likelihood of re-offending.

Information compiled on this Registry may not be used to harass or threaten sex offenders or their families. Harassment, stalking or threats may violate Illinois criminal law.

Kansas

The information contained in a registration entry has been provided by the registrant. Neither the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) nor the sheriff’s office can guarantee the accuracy of this information. It is common for offenders to move and fail to notify the sheriff’s office in their county of residence of that change. This information is updated continuously, however, the KBI cannot guarantee accuracy from day to day.

As a result of the Kansas Supreme Court’s decision in State v. Myers, 260 Kan. 669 (1996), this website contains information only on offenders who committed their offenses on or after April 14, 1994.

Effective July 1, 2005, K.S.A. 22-4909 was amended to require prominent notice on this website as to whether a registered offender is or is not a sex offender. Any offender who by virtue of their registering offense meets the definition of “sex offender”, “sexually violent predator” or was convicted of criminal sexual conduct with a person less than 18 years of age, as set forth in K.S.A. 22-4902, shall be designated as a “sex offender” on this website.

Any person who uses information obtained through this website to threaten, intimidate or harass another, or who otherwise misuses the information may be subject to criminal prosecution and/or civil liability.

Kentucky

The information contained in the sex/criminal offender registration database is primarily provided by the offender when they register with the Department of Corrections or the Division of Probation and Parole. This information is then forwarded to the Kentucky State Police for inclusion in the database. As such, the Kentucky State Police does not guarantee the accuracy of the information provided. Also, it should be noted that offenders may have moved without notifying the Kentucky State Police or the Division of Probation and Parole of the change, even though it is a violation of the law. The database is updated on a daily basis, except for weekends and state holidays. All attempts are made to provide complete and accurate information.

Louisiana

The information you are about to view has been reported to Louisiana State Police Bureau, Sex Offender and Child Predator Registry by various law enforcement agencies and is being published on the website in the interest of public safety and awareness.

Maryland

The public information maintained by the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services in this Sex Offender Registry is provided as part of the State's effort to protect children and others from those with histories of crimes against children and other sexual offenses.

This information has been provided to the Department by the registrant and is based upon the last notification received. Because the data is self-reported by the registrant and time-sensitive:

The Department cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information, and

Registrants may have moved without notifying the Department.

While a name and photograph may assist the public in identifying registrants, positive identification of registrants is obtained only via fingerprint verification.

If a zip code appears to have no registrants in residence, this does not mean that registrants have not moved into the zip code without notifying the Department. Parents and concerned citizens should continue to monitor their environment and take appropriate precautions.

The information presented on this Web site should not be used in any manner to injure, harass, or commit a criminal act against any individual named in the registry, or residing or working at the reported address. Any such action could subject you to criminal prosecution.

Alleged violations of law by registrants under Maryland's program should be reported to any local law enforcement unit. If you have knowledge that a registrant is not residing at the "Last Reported Residence" listed in this registry, you are encouraged to call the "Information Contact" listed for that registrant.

Neither the Department nor the State of Maryland shall be responsible for any errors or omissions produced by secondary dissemination of this information.

Nebraska

Nebraska State Statute 29-4002 declares that sex offenders present a high risk to commit repeat offenses and that efforts of law enforcement agencies to protect their communities, conduct investigations, and quickly apprehend sex offenders are impaired by the lack of available information about individuals who have pleaded guilty to or have been found guilty of sex offenses and who live in their jurisdiction. Because of that, the legislature determined that state policy should assist efforts of local law enforcement agencies to protect their communities by requiring sex offenders to register with local law enforcement agencies as provided by the Sex Offender Registration Act.

This information is to be used to provide public notice and information about a registrant so a community can develop constructive plans to prepare themselves and their family. Sex Offenders have "always" been in our communities. The notification process will remove their ability to act secretly.

Sex offender registry information shall not be used to retaliate against the registrants, their families, or their employers in any way. Vandalism, verbal or written threats of harm are illegal and will result in arrest and prosecution.

This information is being provided from a list of Nebraska State Patrol Press Releases that have been made concerning High Risk/Level 3 Sex Offenders. This Sex Offender notification is updated nightly. The classification is made by the Nebraska State Patrol. All other information in this Registry is obtained by local Sheriff's Offices when Sex Offenders register with those local agencies.

New Jersey

New Jersey law authorizes the Division of State Police to make available to the public over the Internet information about certain sex offenders required to register under Megan's Law. The sex offender Internet registry law can be found in the New Jersey Code at 2C:7-12 to -19.

This information is being made available on the Internet to facilitate public access to information about persons who have committed a sex offense, to enable you to take appropriate precautions to protect yourself and those in your care from possible harm. Public access to registry information is intended solely for the protection of the public, and should never be used to threaten, intimidate or harass another.(See "Prohibitions on Misuse of Registry Information" below.)

The registry is not a complete and comprehensive listing of every person who has ever committed any sex offense in New Jersey, nor does it make information about every sex offender living in New Jersey available on the Internet. In accordance with New Jersey law, individuals who have been convicted, adjudicated delinquent or found not guilty by reason of insanity for a sex offense must register under New Jersey's Megan's Law. The specific offenses for which registration is required can be found in New Jersey Code at 2C:7-2. Individual registrants are then assessed to determine whether they pose a relatively low, moderate or high risk of re-offense, based on application of elements such as the characteristics of the sex offense or offenses they committed, their offense history and other criteria such as response to treatment and community support. Under New Jersey law, before community notification takes place, offenders receive a final classification order from the court following the opportunity for a hearing.

The Attorney General Guidelines for Law Enforcement for the Implementation of Sex Offender Registration can be obtained from the Division of Criminal Justice web site at www.state.nj.us/lps/dcj/megan for more information on the registration, assessment and community notification procedures.

This sex offender Internet registry includes information pertaining to sex offenders determined to pose a relatively high risk of re-offense (tier 3 offenders) and, with certain exceptions, information about sex offenders found to pose a moderate risk of re-offense (tier 2 offenders). The Internet registry excludes any information about offenders determined to present a low risk of re-offense (tier 1 offenders). The information about moderate and high risk sex offenders which is authorized for disclosure in this web site includes: the offender's name and address, any aliases used by the offender; any Megan's Law sex offenses committed by the offender, including a brief description and the date and location of disposition of any such offense; a general description of the offender's modus operandi, if any; the determination of whether the risk of re-offense by the offender is moderate or high; the offender's age, race, sex, date of birth, height, weight, hair, eye color and any distinguishing scars or tattoos; a photograph of the offender and the date on which the photograph was entered into the registry; and the make, model, color, year and license plate number of any vehicle operated by the offender. The Internet registry is continually updated with information about additional registrants added as court orders are issued authorizing Internet disclosure about those individuals.

Accuracy of the Information Contained in this Web Site

Although the individuals listed on the sex offender Internet registry are initially identified through fingerprinting and photograph submission to the Division of State Police, it should be understood that positive identification of any individual whose registration record has been made available on the Internet registry can be verified only through the review of a properly executed fingerprint card. By placing this information on the Internet, no representation is being made that the listed individual will commit any specific crime in the future, nor is any representation being made that if the individual commits an offense, that one of the listed offenses will be the offense committed. The Division of State Police, working in conjunction with the "Megan's Law" Units in each County Prosecutor's Office, verifies and updates this information regularly, to try to assure that it is complete and correct. Address information is supplied by the municipal police departments and County Prosecutors to the Division of State Police for inclusion in this website. Although efforts have been made to ensure the information is as accurate as possible, no guarantee is made or implied. The information may also be subject to change and re-verification. You are cautioned that information provided on this site may not reflect the current residence, status or other information regarding an offender.

Prohibitions on Misuse of Registry Information

Consistent with this public safety purpose of Megan's Law, the Internet registry law expressly prohibits the use of registry information for the purpose of applying for, obtaining, or denying health insurance, insurance, loans, credit, education, scholarships or fellowships, benefits privileges or services provided by any business establishment (unless for a purpose consistent with the enhancement of public safety), or housing or accommodations.

The law also makes it a crime, punishable by a term of imprisonment between three and five years and a fine of up to $15,000, to use registry information to commit a criminal offense, and makes it a disorderly persons offense, punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, to use registry information to commit any disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offense. These charges would be in addition to any charges related to the underlying criminal act committed.

Nevada

The State Criminal History Repository is required by state statute to maintain a website containing information on serious and high-risk sex offenders. Information on the website will include the name, aliases, photograph (where available), conviction information and zip code based on the latest registered address. The website does not contain information on all convicted sex offenders. Information is only provided for sex offenders with a risk assessment score of a TIER Level 3 and certain information regarding a TIER Level 2.

The Sex Offender Registry Unit will update this information regularly; however, the information contained on this site may not reflect the current residential street or work information regarding the offender. While care has been taken in the compilation of this information and every attempt has been made to present up-to-date and accurate information, the State Criminal History Repository cannot guarantee that inaccuracies will not occur. It should be noted that sex offender registration information contained on these pages is constantly updated due to new registrants and the relocation of existing registrants. The State Criminal History Repository will not be held responsible for any loss, damage, or inconvenience caused as a result of any inaccuracy or error within these pages. If you believe that any of the information found in these records are inaccurate, please contact your local law enforcement agency.

Under the provisions of state law and as further defined by the State Attorney General, this information is provided for general public safety. A person is authorized to use this information only to protect him/herself or a child who may be at risk. The release of this information to the public is meant to assure public protection, not to punish the offender.

Ohio

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) has established this web site as the official Internet source for Sex Offender Registration information. The public Sex Offender Registration information is compiled from the state registry of sex offenders and child-victim offenders.

This information is being made available on the Internet to facilitate public access to information about persons who have committed either sexually oriented offenses, or child-victim oriented offenses, to enable you to take appropriate precautions to protect yourself and those in your care from possible harm. Please note that while individual sex predators or habitual sex offenders pose a high risk of engaging in further offenses, BCI&I has not assessed any specific risk of re-offense with regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion within this registry, and has made no determination that any individual included in the registry is currently dangerous. The reason for providing this data on the Internet is to make the information more easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individual. Individuals included within the registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction record and state law. Persons who have been arrested or charged with a registrable sex offense or a child- victim oriented offense are not required to register unless the arrest or charge results in a conviction. Public access to registry information is intended solely for the edification of the public. ANYONE WHO USES THIS INFORMATION TO COMMIT A CRIMINAL ACT AGAINST ANOTHER PERSON WILL BE SUBJECT TO CRIMINAL PROSECUTION.

The registry is not a complete and comprehensive listing of every person who has ever committed any sex offense or child-victim oriented offense in Ohio, nor does it make all information about every offender living in Ohio available on the Internet. Furthermore, the database is compiled based, in part, upon information provided by the convicted offender and such information is not independently verified by BCI&I. As such, the registry may contain erroneous information. It is your responsibility to make sure the records you access through this site pertain to the person about whom you are seeking information. A positive identification of an individual cannot be conclusively established by comparing name, date of birth, social security number or other information with that provided in this registry. Comparisons based on appearance may also be misleading, and cannot establish a positive identification without some possibility of error. The only way to positively link someone to a sex offender record is through fingerprint verification. Therefore, extreme care should be exercised in using any information obtained from this web site. Neither BCI&I nor the State of Ohio shall be responsible for any errors or omissions produced by secondary dissemination of this information.

If you believe that any of the information found in these records is in error, or you would like additional information, please contact the sheriff of the county where the sex offender resides.

The office of Attorney General of Ohio disclaims liability for any errors or omissions. Use of this site means you agree to the Terms and Conditions.

Ohio Revised Code Section 2950.02 expresses the determination of the Ohio General Assembly to provide the public with adequate notice and information about sex offenders, as a means of enhancing public safety. The Attorney General’s electronic Sex Offender Registry and Notification (eSORN) public and law enforcement websites are intended to supplement and compliment individual county sheriff’s website information. O.R.C. 2950.13 requires that the public eSORN database contain information on every person convicted as an adult and registered in the state registry of sex offenders and child-victim offenders. A separate confidential law-enforcement database is required to contain additional information on these adult offenders, as well as information on persons adjudicated as delinquent children who are registered in the state registry. The individual county sheriff’s representatives are best situated to provide local sex offender and registration information. The technical exchange of information between county and state websites may account for a minor lag in posting of information from the local to the state website.

Pennsylvania's General Assembly has determined that public safety will be enhanced by making information about registered sex offenders available to the public through the Internet. Knowledge whether a person is a registered sex offender could be a significant factor in protecting yourself, your family members, or persons in your care from recidivist acts by registered sex offenders. Public access to information about registered sex offenders is intended solely as a means of public protection.

When viewing the information on this website, please be advised that:

The information contained on this website has been provided by the registrant and/or other entities.

Some of the information contained on this website may be outdated or inaccurate.

This website is not a comprehensive listing of every person who has ever committed a sex offense in Pennsylvania.

The only way to positively identify a person posted on the Internet website as a sex offender is to compare the offender's fingerprints against the fingerprints taken at the time of arrest or incarceration.

The Pennsylvania State Police does not provide information on sexually violent predators who are still in prison, unless the sexually violent predator was previously registered with the Pennsylvania State Police and subsequently reincarcerated after registration.

This registry is not a complete and comprehensive listing of every person who has ever committed any sex offense in Pennsylvania, nor does it make information about every sex offender living in Pennsylvania available on the Internet. Under Pennsylvania law, before community notification takes place, offenders receive a final classification order from the court following the opportunity for a hearing.

Accuracy of the Information Contained within this Registry

Although the individuals listed on the sex offender registry are initially identified through fingerprinting and photograph submission to the Pennsylvania State Police, it should be understood that positive identification of any individual whose registration record has been made available on the Internet registry can be verified only though the review of a properly executed fingerprint card. By placing this information on the Internet, no representation is being made that the listed individual will commit any specific crime in the future, nor is any representation being made that if the individual commits an offense that one of the listed offenses will be the offense committed. The Pennsylvania State Police, Megan's Law Section, verifies and updates this information regularly to try and ensure that it is complete and correct. Although efforts have been made to ensure the information is as accurate as possible, no guarantee is made or implied.

The Sex Offender Community Notification Unit is releasing the following information pursuant to RI General Laws §11-37.1-1 ET SEQ., also known as the Sexual Offender Registration and Community Notification Act. These individuals are subject to community notification pursuant to RI General Laws §11-37.1-1 which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release when the Sex Offender Board of Review determines that the release of information will enhance public safety and protection.

The individuals who appear on these notifications have been convicted of a sex offense, which also requires registration with law enforcement pursuant to RI General Laws §11-37.1-1 ET SEQ.

THIS OFFENDER IS NOT WANTED BY THE POLICE AT THIS TIME AND HAS SERVED THE SENTENCE IMPOSED ON HIM BY THE COURT. THIS NOTIFICATION IS NOT TO INCREASE FEAR IN THE COMMUNITY. IT IS THE BELIEF OF LAW ENFORCEMENT THAT AN INFORMED PUBLIC IS A SAFE PUBLIC.

Per Rhode Island General Law sex offenders who are eligible for community notification review must have a date of offense on or after 7-24-96. In Rhode Island sex offenders are classified based on their risk to re-offend. An offender’s classification will be:

Level 1 or “low risk offender”

Level 2 or “moderate risk offender”

Level 3 or “high risk offender”

Website information about a sex offender is available to the public only if the Sex Offender Board of Review has classified the offender as a Level 3 offender. Per Rhode Island Law information pertaining to level 1 and level 2 sex offenders cannot be posted on a website.

No agency, including any Law Enforcement Agency or any state agency, may direct where the offender does or does not reside, nor can these agencies direct where the offender works or goes to school. The risk level of this offender has been determined based largely on the offender’s potential to re-offend.

Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but it was not until passage of the Sexual Offender Registration and Community Notification Act that law enforcement even knew where they were living. In many cases, law enforcement is now able to share information with you. Abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered offenders will not be tolerated and may be a crime. Further, such abuse could potentially end law enforcement’s ability to conduct community notifications. We believe that if community notification ends because of community harassment, the only person who wins is the sex offender since sex offenders derive their power through secrecy.

WARNING: Information contained on this website should not be used to threaten or harass any identified individual as such conduct may be prohibited under the general laws of Rhode Island.

Virginia

The registry, including the Public Notification Database, is based on the Virginia General Assembly's decision to facilitate access to publicly-available information about persons convicted of specified violent and sexual offenses. The Virginia State Police has not considered or assessed the specific risk of reoffense with regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion within this registry, and has made no determination that any individual included in the registry is currently dangerous. The main purpose of providing this data on the internet is to make the information more easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individual.

Adult individuals found within the registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction record and applicable state law. Effective July 1, 2005, juveniles over the age of 13 at the time of offense, who are tried as a juvenile and are adjudicated delinquent, are also included within the registry if the trial Court determined that the circumstances of the offense require offender registration and ordered the juvenile to register pursuant to 9.1-902(C) of the Code of Virginia.

Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Department of Corrections sex offender registry was established in June 1997 due to the enactment of Wisconsin Act 440 - Wisconsin Statutes 301.45 and 301.46. This law requires registration of individuals who have been convicted of certain sexual offenses. By law, the registry generally contains information on those individuals who were convicted, adjudicated, incarcerated, or on supervision for a sex offense on or after December 25, 1993. It is not a list of every person who has ever committed, been arrested for, or convicted of a sex offense. If a person has not been convicted of a qualifying offense, or if information has not been submitted about that person, information about that person may not be included in the registry. The information contained in the registry will not reflect the entire criminal history of a particular individual.

DOC has not considered or assessed the specific risk of re-offense with regard to any registrant prior to the registrant's inclusion within this registry. Individuals are included in the registry solely by virtue of their conviction record and state law.
