Reform Sex Offender Laws

Urge your Representative and Senator to reform the Missouri Sex Offender Laws.

Why is this important?

Currently in Missouri and across the country, sex offenders are put on a Public Registry for Life that allows anybody to see where they live, work, their car information, etc. Sex Offenders live in fear that their neighbor, employer or anyone else can target them, even when they have served their time and paid for their crime. Their basic civil rights are being abused and they daily face "unusual and cruel punishment" from these laws currently on the books. HB1700 is currently in the MO House of Representatives for a vote soon. It is a law to change who is on the Registry and for how long. The worst and most violent criminals will remain for the longest time. A board consisting of qualified professionals will conduct risk assessments to determine which of the Tier Levels a sex offender is placed on and that will determine how long one is on the Registry.

  • This is a epidemic of out of control proportions! Tiering system was put into play and misused. No one is immune to this happening to them. All it takes is one accusation no matter who you are and you are here fighting a fight several others are fighting. I hear all the time I am sorry you are going through this but I'm not comfortable helping. Statistics show that the majority of other offenses reoffend. Where are there rules stating a conviction of robbery cannot live near banks or stores? ...
