The state Legislature in 1992 passed a law that requires individuals convicted of gross sexual assault against a victim under 16 to report his or her address to the state Department of Public Safety and keep that information current for 15 years. The law, however, doesn't require the DPS to report the criminal's address to local or county authorities or require offenders from out of state to register. Furthermore, it does not apply to child abusers who commit lesser crimes; offenders whose vicitms are 16 or older; or to any conviction that predated the law.
