SPRINGFIELD, Mo. The number of people in Missouri’s sex offender registry could decrease as a new law allows non-violent sex offenders to petition to get off the list as of this week.
This is part of Senate Bill 655. It puts sex offenders in one of three categories: Level one, two and three, with three being the most severe.
Non-violent offenders in tier one and tier two can petition after 10 and 25 years… While violent offenders in the third tier will remain on the registry for life.
