Though much of the information is of record, some information is gathered from the offenders themselves who may fail to provide accurate or required information.Additional information and verification can be obtained from the Chief Law Enforcement Official (Sheriff) of the county where the sex offender resides.
The Revised Statutes of Missouri, Chapter 589 Sections 400 to 425 and 43.650, RSMo., mandate that the Missouri State Highway Patrol shall maintain a sex offender database and a web site on the Internet that is accessible to the public.
Additional information and verification may be obtained from the Chief Law Enforcement Official (Sheriff) of the county where the sex offender resides.
The web site is intended to supplement and complement the sex offender registries maintained by the various counties.
The information on the web site refers only to persons who have been convicted of, found guilty of or plead guilty to committing or attempting to commit sexual offenses and may not reflect the entire criminal history of a particular individual.
Offenders required to register for crimes of kidnapping, felonious restraint or child abuse may not be listed on this web site.
The Sex Offender Registry was created in response to the Missouri Legislature's resolution to facilitate public access to available information about persons registered as sexual offenders.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol, Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division, has not considered or assessed the specific risk of re-offense with regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion on this web site and has made no determination that any individual included on the web site is currently dangerous.
Individuals included on the web site are included solely by virtue of their conviction record and Missouri state law.
The primary purpose of providing this information is to make the information easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individual.
