Description

WKYT-TV's investigative team found that many of the Kentucky's registered sex offenders weren't living where they said they were. State law requires high-risk sex offenders be registered with the state after release from prison with their information being added to the Kentucky's Online Sex Offender Registry. Over two months reporters discovered that many offenders gave false information and that state and local law enforcement agencies weren't up to date on tracking the offenders movements. After the report, state legislators began reviewing the law and were discussed new methods of enforcement
