Sex Offenders and Public Safety: a four-part series

Virginia Public Radio recently aired a series of reports on various aspects of the sex offender registry.

The public often hears news about sex offenders who commit the most serious crimes, but many of the sex offenses you don’t hear about – while disturbing – were not violent. In Virginia, for example, inappropriate touching, texting a lewd photo or using X-rated language in front of a minor can land people on Virginia’s sex offender registry.

You can read, and listen to, the reports here.
