Recently, ten of the top 100 unregistered sex offenders were found in Coloradoâ€™s first statewide crack down. The U.S. Marshals Service along with local law enforcement during this time made 53 total arrests. In addition, they found 43 other people who had failed to register and allegedly possessed child pornography or had immigrations charges against them.
The crack down started over the weekend and targeted sex offenders with outstanding warrants as well as those who didnâ€™t give police their correct addresses or notified police when they moved.
Arrests included a sex offender who did not properly register in connection with a 1986-second degree sex assault conviction. Another arrest was of a sex offender for a 2002 conviction on attempted sex assault on a child by one in a position of trust.
During this crack down, law enforcement targeted the worst of the worst. Law enforcement is eager to arrest unregistered sex offenders because if they are not supervised or monitored they are more likely to commit new crimes.
Minnesotaâ€™s sex offender registry site gives a list of sex offenders. If you know of a sex offender who is not registered, contact your local police department.
