Registered sex offender faces new charges

Convicted sex offenders in Indiana are required to report their address, work place, e-mail address and other information to the state as a precaution against further violations.

This program is intended to serve as a warning system that will help people in Indiana avoid contact with sexual predators. Unfortunately, the system has occasional failures, as demonstrated by a recent federal court indictment of a former youth minister and registered sex offender.

One Delaware County prosecutor also noted that federal laws carry tougher penalties for these crimes than do Indiana's statutes.
