Sangamon County deputies have found only a handful of problems during a check of registered sex offenders to make sure they’re actually living where they say they are.
The compliance checks are a regular part of keeping tabs on convicted sex offenders after they serve their sentence. In the latest sweep, the county checked the addresses of 75 such offenders. 47 were found to be in compliance… and deputies are still working to confirm the residences of 24 others.
Problems were found with four cases… one was found in non-compliance and the case was referred to the State’s Attorney. Another offender may have moved out-of-state without permission… that case was referred to U.S. Marshals. A third subject was arrested on weapons charges, and a fourth was found in prison on a new sex offense charge.
