Monroe County Sex Offender Registry Search (Tennessee)
AP — A federal judge has ruled that parts of Tennessee's sex offender registration act should not be applied retroactively to two offenders who sued over the law. Monday's ruling in the U. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee was narrowly written to apply only to the two plaintiffs.
Pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated Section , members of the public are not allowed to use information from the registry to inflict retribution or additional punishment to offenders. Harassment, stalking, or threats against offenders or members of their families are prohibited and doing so may violate both Tennessee criminal and civil laws. Though much of the information in the registry is of record, some of the information contained on the registry is obtained directly from offenders. The information contained in an offender's record does not imply listed individuals will commit a specific type of crime in the future, nor does it imply that if a future crime is committed by a listed individual what the nature of that crime may be.
