LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
The number of Tier 3 offenders jumped from around 300 to more than 3,000 with the change. Now, even Tier 1 offenders will be publicly identified.
While well-intentioned, this is where the Nevada law and others like it run off the rails due to an often overly broad definition of a sex offense. Stupid and often youthful indiscretions such as public urination or mooning could theoretically land a people on sex offender registries for decades or even for life, jeopardizing their ability to find jobs or places to live.
