Right to Know vs. Right to Privacy

The right to know versus the right to privacy.

A law change could be in the works when it comes to information about the state's convicted sex offenders.

Currently, you can request information about offenders who live in your city or a neighboring one. And often, to request such information, you must fill out an application, pay a fee, and wait a period of time for it to process.

But some state lawmakers are thinking about allowing police agencies to place sex offender information on their websites, making it instantly available to anyone.

Critics of the change say it would violate the privacy of sex offenders.
