Alaska Sex Offenders

The Alaska Sex Offenders Law came after the sexual assault and murder of Megan Kanka in New Jersey. Megan’s death in the hands of a re-offending sex offender got the attention of legislators in Alaska.

Alaska Sex Offenders law protects the State from such tragedy. The law also prevents sex offenders from re-offending after their first release from custody.

The law states that sex offenders must report regularly to a law enforcement agency in the state. Offenders should provide valid information on their home address.

The law restricts registered sex offenders from specific areas in the state. Areas like bars, parks, and public places are out-of-bounds for sex offenders. Sex offenders are also made to live within a defined distance from public spaces like schools and parks.

The law makes sure every offender in the state registers his information with the Registry. This information will assist in protecting public safety.

What does a Sex Offender Look Like?

Most people think sexual predators are scary-looking and creepy. But three out of four adolescents who were sexually assaulted were victimized by someone they knew well.

Most of the time, sexual predators look like regular people. Children and parents need to know and to understand that anyone can be a sexual predator, no matter how "normal" they appear.

Encouraging Children to Share

It isn't always easy to build a trusting relationship with your child. Trying to get your children to share what is going on in their lives can be difficult.

Building an open and welcoming environment from the beginning stages of a child's life is essential. Children are less intimidated and more likely to discuss issues and topics in their lives with an open and supportive environment.

Getting your kids to share serves as a building block for times when your child needs to discuss pressing issues like sex and sexual abuse.
