The Sex Offender Registry took up much of the discussion in the Senate Judiciary Committee in the state Capitol. The Senators killed three sex offender bills created from a 2009 summer study. The bills deal with juvenile sex offenders, modifying the criteria for the removal from the sex offender registry, and limits on the misdemeanor eligibility for registering on the sex offender list. The Senators killed the measures because they felt all three issues were addressed in another measure that would establish a tiered sex offender registry. Senator Craig Tieszen (TEE-zen) believes the Senate committee has made great headway with the sex offender measures So far
The measure passed and now moves on to the Senate.
