Nebraska Sex-Offender Website Guidelines

It is time for a refresher course in using the Nebraska Sex-Offender website managed by the Nebraska State Patrol. There are eight basic guidelines, and we'll post one a day until we're done.

Guideline 4:  The Nebraska Sex Offender Registry website prior to Jan. 1, 2010, included only individuals who were at high risk to reoffend. Since Jan. 1, 2010, the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry website has included people who are not dangerous as well as people who are innocent of what they were accused of doing. These are individuals who accepted plea agreements rather than deal with our society’s “guilty until proven innocent” attitude toward sexual offenses. By listing them on the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry website, the state violated their plea agreements and legal action is being pursued to hold the state accountable.
