Despite a wave of new laws designed to keep sex offenders in prison longer, the state of Georgia is not delivering on its promise to punish and protect. Most Georgia sex offenders are not behind bars. More than half the state's 8,509 sex offenders live relatively free lives on probation or parole. Those sentenced to prison aren't there long. The probation system is overwhelmed and underequipped to supervise sex offenders. Georgians seldom know about sex offenders living in their communities.
