Alabama Sex Offenders

Alabama Sex Offender’s Law makes sure all sex offenders get registered in the state. Sex offenders register their current address, email and other relevant information. The local law enforcement agencies in Alabama receive this information. The state of Alabama adopted this law after the death of Megan Kanka in New Jersey.

Megan Kanka died in the hands of a convicted sex offender. Her death led to the “Megan’s Law” aimed at protecting the public from sex offenders. The law also limits the tendency of sentenced offenders to re-offend.
