Missouri Sex Offender Ruling
A new Missouri Supreme Court ruling changes the way the state handles its sex offender list.
What does that mean for you?
It means a convicted sex offender could be living in your neighborhood and you would never know about it.
"It's already so easy for sex offenders to get away with it and do it again," Eris Schloss says. She was brutally raped at her Cape Girardeau home, seven years ago.
She's finally found peace in her surroundings, but never lets her guard down.
"If you know a sex offender is in your neighborhood, you know maybe to keep a closer eye on the kids or maybe to make sure and lock the doors," she says.
That's why Schloss always checks out public sex offender lists.
But, under the new Missouri ruling, that information might not be as complete as you'd like it to be.
"They ruled that sex offenders whose convictions occurred prior to this law taking effect in 1995, cannot be forced to come in and register, Cape Girardeau Prosecutor Morley Swingle says.
He's referring to Megan's Law, which requires offenders to register names and addresses at the county sheriff's department.
Now, unless someone's a persistent offender (convicted of two or more sex crimes) or a predatory sex offender (found by a court to have committed multiple sex crimes) Swingle points out they'd be off the hook, and it's all thanks to the Missouri constitution, which says a law may not be retroactive, or applied after the fact.
"It's going to have a big impact because probably about half to 3/4th of the sex offenders in Cape Girardeau County lists were for convictions that occurred prior to 1995,: Swingle says.
"Most individuals that are convicted of sexual offenses are not
repeat offenders," Defense attorney Malcolm Montgomery says.
"I don't think they were ever required to register to begin with, That's my client's position and that's the position of an awful lot of people," she says.
So what can you do in the meantime?
If you disagree with the ruling, Swingle says you can call your local legislators and speak up.
If the issue gets put on the ballot, there's always a chance you could vote to have the constitution amended.
Missouri now becomes one of only four states in the nation that doesn't require certain sex offenders to register at their county sheriff's departments.
