San diego county registered sex offender web site
In fact, Oregon has the most registered sex offenders per capita of any state except one, national statistics show. Others come to Oregon with no intention of playing by the rules. They exploit federal and state laws that rely on the honor system. Police often discover violators only after they commit another crime, get pulled over during a traffic stop or because someone reports them.
"Most of these cases, to be blunt, are dumb luck," said Josh Marquis, Clatsop County's district attorney who handled one of Beebout's arraignments.
The federal law expanded the types of crimes eligible for registration, increased the period and frequency of registration for some offenders and called for states to publicize considerable information on the Internet. Today, only 19 states have substantially met the requirements. The other states are New Mexico, Kentucky, and North Dakota.
"If I was a high-risk sex offender and I had a choice between living in a SORNA-compliant state or a non-compliant SORNA state, I pretty much suspect where I'd go," said Capt.
Calvin Curths, commander of the state police criminal investigation division.
Oregon's public website lists only a fraction — 2.5 percent — of the state's more than 25,000 sex offenders.
So residents can't really tell who and how many sex offenders are in their neighborhoods.
