Flaws found in sex offender registry

Kirk Mitchell and Sean Kelly of The Denver Post investigated Colorado's system for notifying communities about sexually violent offenders, finding that "since a state law went into effect in 1999, Colorado has labeled only two men not in prison as sexually violent predators, even though more than 1,300 sex offenders met the initial criteria to be labeled predators." The state corrections department began performing evaluations only after the paper began its inquiry.
