This registry is made available through the Internet with the intent to better assist the public in preventing and protecting against the commission of future criminal sexual acts by convicted sex offenders.
The Sex Offenders Registration Act, MCL 28.721et seq., directs the Michigan State Police (MSP) to develop and maintain a public registry and provides guidelines on the type of offender information available to the public. The legislature has determined that a person who has been convicted of committing an offense covered by this act poses a potential serious menace and danger to the health, safety, morals, and welfare of the people, and particularly the children, of this state. The registration requirements of the Sex Offenders Registration Act are intended to provide the people of this state with an appropriate, comprehensive, and effective means to monitor those persons who pose such a potential danger. The offense link available on the offender details page reflects the current statute and due to continuous legislative changes, may not be indicative of the statute at the time the offender was convicted.
The information contained on the Public Sex Offender Registry (PSOR) can change quickly. The MSP frequently updates the registry in a continuous effort to provide complete and accurate information. While much of the information is obtained from public records, some information, such as physical description and residence, is gathered from the offenders themselves who may fail to provide accurate information. Therefore, the MSP makes no representation, express or implied, that the information contained on the PSOR is accurate. Any individual who believes information contained on the PSOR is not accurate should contact the local law enforcement agency, sheriff's office, or the nearest state police post having jurisdiction over the offender's residence. Information provided through the PSOR is public information. However, it is your responsibility to make sure the records accessed through the registry pertain to the person about whom you are seeking information. Extreme care should be exercised in using any information obtained from this web site. Information on this site must not be used to unlawfully injure, harass, or commit a crime against any individual named in the registry or residing or working at any reported address. Any such action could result in civil or criminal penalties. The MSP is not responsible for any errors or omissions produced by secondary dissemination of this information.
