A local coalition is calling for the removal of children from Minnesota’s Predatory Offender Registry. A group of more than two dozen residents are recommending that the state take most children off the list as recent research has revealed that children are at low risk of re-offending as adults. Opponents of the idea say the registry is important as it has helped in the Katie Poirier and Dru Sjodin cases. If enacted by lawmakers, the changes would be the first steps to regulate a registry. As it stands, Minnesota’s Predatory Offender Registry can include children as young as 10-years-old.
