United States National Sex Offenders Public Registry
Constitutionality of sex offender registries in the United States. The registry is coordinated by the United States Department of Justice and operates a web site search tool allowing a user to submit a single query to obtain information about sex offenders throughout the United States. State sex-offender registration and notification programs are designed, in general, to include information about offenders who have been convicted of a "criminal offense against a victim who is a minor" or a "sexually violent offense," as specified in the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act "the Wetterling Act"  — more specifically, information about persons convicted of offenses involving sexual molestation or sexual exploitation of children, and persons convicted of rape and rape-like offenses regardless of the age of the victim , respectively. Not all state web sites provide for public disclosure of information about all sex-offenders who reside, work, or attend school in the state. For example, one state may limit public disclosure over its web site of information concerning offenders who have been determined to be high-risk, while another state may provide for wider disclosure of offender information but make no representation as to risk level of specific offenders.
A Tier I offender is someone who was convicted and served less than one year in prison. Examples of Tier I sex offenses would be receipt or possession of child pornography, or sexual assault against an adult that involved sexual contact, but not a completed or attempted sexual act. Second tier offenses are generally more aggressive sexual contact crimes that carry longer than a one-year prison term. Tier I offenders who commit a second sexual offense are generally placed into the Tier II category. Any offense against a victim under the age of 18 automatically falls into this tier.
