In Oklahoma, for example, children adjudicated delinquent of sex offenses are treated in a manner more consistent with juvenile sexual offending behavior. Registries create the impression that neighborhoods are thick with recidivist sexual predators, making it impossible for residents, including parents, to discern who actually is dangerous. Questions regarding any local city ordinance should be directed to the local law enforcement registrar's office at the Police Department or the city attorney's office in the jurisdiction of the ordinance. They are sometimes shot at, beaten, even murdered; many are repeatedly threatened with violence. In , in Orange County, California, three boys were convicted of sexually assaulting a year-old girl and videotaping the incident. In reporting this fact to the proper local law enforcement authority, the sex offender must provide all the information that is required for sex offender registration, the address of any location in the municipality or county at which the offender was lodged during the month, and a statement as to whether the offender intends to return to the municipality or county during the succeeding month. School Notification In some cases, a local law enforcement authority must notify the superintendent of a public school district and administrator of a private primary or secondary school located in the school district that a registered sex offender is residing within the school district. Community notification of sex offenders is provided in several different ways. The few children that are placed on the registry have their information disclosed only to law enforcement, and youth offenders are removed once they reach the age of Second, sex offender registration overburdens law enforcement. I wish I could explain what it is like to be the parent of both a child who has been abusing and a child who has been victimized. Registration will not protect a victim from a family member. Many consider suicide, and some succeed. Nearly 25 percent of child molesters were age 40 or older, but about 10 percent of inmates with adult victims were in that age group. Despite the massive growth in the number of registered sex offenders, studies of states that have implemented registration requirements are inconclusive as to whether the registries have any effect on the incidence of reported sex offenses.
