Dozens in Ohio Wrongly Labeled Sex Offenders

By    |   Friday, 04 November 2011 03:49 AM EDT

Dozens of Ohioans were wrongfully included on a statewide sex offender registry when an outside company hired to help run the directory put in outdated and inaccurate information.
 
Some people raised questions on Wednesday, wondering how so many people could have been wrongfully included on a statewide sex offender registry.
 
It took state officials more than two weeks to figure out wrong information was being used, and the website was eventually shut down and fixed, said 10TV News, a Columbus-area television station..
 
The problem was simple human error, said the state attorney general’s office.
 
“There were probably hundreds, but we don’t know exactly because we didn’t take the time to go through the records individually,” said Steven Raubenolt, deputy superintendent of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
                                                                                                                
A group that protests the registry was concerned that people who were no longer required to register ended up on the list because of the glitch.
 
“Watch Systems [a sex offender monitoring system] and the Ohio Attorney General do not seem to care that when you list a man on the registry, his wife and children suffer,” said Ellen Shores of Families Against the Registry.
