Sexual violence is a significant public health problem in the United States. In an effort to decrease the incidence of sexual assault, legislators have passed regulatory laws aimed at reducing recidivism among convicted sexual offenders. As a result, sex offenders living in the United States are bound by multiple policies, including registration, community notification, monitoring via a global positioning system, civil commitment, and residency, loitering, and Internet restrictions. These policies have led to multiple collateral consequences, creating an ominous environment that inhibits successful reintegration and may contribute to an increasing risk for recidivism.

The email form only requires the message. However, we encourage you to include your email address and other contact details if you'll be using it to submit a tip for a particular sex offender. Your tip may be provided to the appropriate law enforcement agency for follow-up investigation. This will ensure that this site contains accurate information. Any person who provides false information knowingly or who uses this information to commit a criminal act against another person is subject to criminal prosecution. Some people use automated tools to get offender data from this site. The load this puts on our servers causes problems for other users, so we cannot allow it.

The sweep was conducted throughout the day on Thursday, the April 11, said the press release. Law enforcement officers attempted compliance checks on 76 registered sex offenders to ensure compliance with registration requirements and, of the 89 sex offenders registered in Hood River County, eight were non-compliant, resulting in arrest, citation or warning on six offenders. The remaining two were verified as non-compliant but not located, likely due to moving out of state, said the press release. No additional compliance sweeps are planned for the near future, Ives said, but those found non-compliant have steps that they need to take to get back in compliance.
On Tuesday, Gilbert Lee, a doctor convicted 10 years ago of fondling patients, filed a petition in Deschutes County Circuit Court to be relieved of his obligation to register as a sex offender. These requests are granted more than some might think. For one thing, the offender must have only the one sex-related offense on his or her record. Also, 10 years must have passed. These two requirements alone prevent many from filing.
