Sex Offender Statutes
Sex Offender Statutes

Listen
AIR DATE: December 14, 2011

In 2007, the Nevada Legislature toughened the registration and requirements for sex offenders in Nevada. The American Civil Liberties Union has challenged those requirements as unconstitutional. But the state changed its laws to comply with the Adam Walsh Law - a law passed by Congress to ensure that all states met minimal standards for sex offender registration.
 
So is Nevada's law a reasonable rule to protect the public or does it punish sex offenders twice for the same crime and impose punishments that were put on the statute book long after the crimes were committed and the time was served?
