Should I inform the community of a registered sex offender?

I live in a small town. Some of our local publications have highlighted a business that is owned and operated by a person who is a level 3 registered sex offender. I don’t believe the publications have done background checks. My question is am I obligated to inform the publications or local community.

No. Local law enforcement should be doing that. You can actually get into trouble in some states for doing “outing them”

You’re not obligated, but wouldn’t you want to know?

I get where you are coming from. I really do. I would want to know as well but this is NOT your place to out someone. That is a law enforcement issue. They should be telling people. You could probably ask law enforcement if they are going to tell the community but it is not your obligation.

This is not your obligation. It is the offender and police’s obligation. You could possibly get in trouble outing them. It’s good you know so you don’t have to partake in their business but its not your job to out them.

No …let local law enforcement know instead.

Id contact your local police force and ask them if they are aware of this person and ask that they put fliers up to inforn the general public.

Anything that’s public record you will not get into trouble for letting the community know. Not all law enforcement agencies have the time to notify the community, ours doesn’t.

Honestly, no. Not your place. People have a right to know if they want to know, that’s why the registry is there, but it’s on them to look just as you did. Hate it all you want, but that person did their time and registered like they are suppose to. Put up fliers with the website and remind the public to check the registry regularly.
