Michigan sex offender registries upgraded after audit

By Staff

The state's sex offender registries have received an update, following recommendations from a 2005 audit that found they contained inaccurate and incomplete data, according to an MLive report.

The Michigan State Police made several changes to the system following the audit’s recommendations, according to a follow-up report released Tuesday by Michigan’s Auditor General, MLive reported.

According to the report, the department now uses address verification software and interfaces with the Secretary of State driver’s license records and the MSP criminal history records database.

When did "You do the crime, you pay the time" become "You do the crime, we ruin your life until you die"?

There are people on the list who never did time, who were accused by a parent who objected to two underage teenagers who engaged in sexual activity! The law punishes the boy in a pair of 15 year olds and not the girl. He is a "registered sex offender" for years, can't get a job, can't live near a school. This is discrimination and legal bullying. There is no recourse. Of course, parents should protect their daughters but this is extreme.
