There are many different kinds of sex offender registries on the internet, but many of them may be difficult to find, use, understand and some of these registries charge a fee. MapSexOffenders.com does not charge a fee and is easy to use and view. Each sex offender is highlighted on a map at their location. Once there you can access the nature and severity of the offender’s crimes. You can even zoom in to view the offender and find their current address. This map also links to the offenderâ€™s state registry where you can view additional information on them such as driving offenses and possible convictions.
