The sheriff's department also Das sex offenders list the crime they were convicted of, where the crime occurred, the age of the victim, the name of their, parole officer, blood type, any scars or tattoos on their bodies, and identifying information such as driver's li- dense and Social Security num- tyers. Therefore, it is probably in the public's best interest to know if these people are in the community.
Therefore, if there was a child molestation in the city, officials could look through the sex offender registration and, if the list included a pedophile matching the description of a suspect, they could question that person.
Without the registry, law en- forcement officials don't know if there are people in the community with past sex crime convictions. But others say the law can lead to continual punishment for people who already have served the state-imposed sentences for their crimes, and it won't be effective in alerting the public to possible danger at the hands of sexual predators. One problem with the law is that it was the result of Schmidt's tragic murder, said Dick Kurtenbach, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas and Western Missouri.

Wilson agreed that could be a, problem.

But the man said his conviction was the result of bad judgment, and that bad judgment could haunt him for the rest of his life. I don't think it's anyone's business. I did wrong, but I've done my time and gone through treatment and.
James McClelland, 49, formerly of Ellis, Kan. Jurors found him guilty of using interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire, and he faced a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison. District Judge Justin Quackenbush on Thursday ordered a prison term of just five years. The shorter prison term was appropriate because Mark Russell, the would-be hit man, "substantially induced" McClelland to commit the crime, Quackenbush said. In addition, McClelland, an insurance executive, had been in an "emotional state" after losing custody of his son, the judge said.
