The sheriff’s office in Orange County, Ca., will update its Web site to identify the homes of high-risk sex offenders, says the Los Angeles Times. Since 2002, the site has identified the neighborhoods in which some sex offenders live. State lawmakers want the county to specify the offenders’ addresses. Currently, visitors to sww.ocsd.org can determine whether offenders live within 1,000 feet of their homes, but cannot learn the offenders’ addresses or the streets on which they live.
With the county board’s blessing, sheriff’s officials intend to specify the streets, block numbers, and cities in which high-risk sex offenders live and will post the offenders’ names and photographs. High-risk sex offenders have two or more convictions for certain sex crimes.
