Bobbi Brewer Professor Bailey September 26, 2023 Assignment 6 & 13 Controversy 6.1 What are the goals of sex offender registries? The number one goal of sex offender registries is to provide information on convicted sex offenders to the public, especially children, for their safety. One can also say the registries help the sex offenders not to reoffend because their name is out there. What are some of the criticisms of sex offender registries? A criticism that some people have about sex offender registries is that the offenders are doing their time for this crime, and are still treated poorly. They can't find any jobs, no one wants to deal with them because they're registered. Do sex offender registries infringe on the rights of those accused and convicted of these crimes? Or are they important tools in evaluating and managing the risk of potentially dangerous offenders in the community? Sex offender registries infringe on the rights of those convicted of these crimes and serve their time. I also feel like they are important tools in managing the risk of potential offenders in the community. It's a really hard debate because there are pros and cons to this registry. Based on the evidence presented, are the laws that permit sex offender registries effective at preventing crimes? Based on the evidence presented, the laws that permit sex offender registries are effective at preventing crimes. There has been a reduction in sex crime rates. Do these laws (sex offender registry) go too far? Or not far enough In my opinion, the sex offender registry goes too far with not taking the offender off the list once they serve their time. At the same time you have to think like should you keep them on the list because what if they do it again? It's hard to say if it's either or.
