Michigan’s Public Sex Offender Registry (PSOR) 

If you have been involved in a sex crime or convicted of one, you should keep in mind that there are some facts that you should know about it. Let us answer some of your questions:

Is the Public Sex Offender Registry Public?

Yes, the public sex offender registry is so public that it is even listed on the internet for any person to access at any given moment. Internet registration is a requirement when it comes to those required to be part of the registry.

What information must a sex offender provide for the public to read?

Every public sex offence registry site requires that the registration of the offender include the following:

  • Offender’s name;
  • Date of birth;
  • Registration number;
  • Photo;
  • Registration details;
  • Physical characteristics;
  • Known alias(es);
  • Scars;
  • Marks;
  • Tattoos;
  • Offense information;
  • Address information;
  • Campus information;
  • Employment information; and
  • Vehicle information.

What if I know someone who has been convicted of a sex crime but is not listed on the registry? What do I do?

There are several reasons why a sex offender may not be on the public registry. The following are some of the basic reasons according to the State of Michigan:

  • The offender is an adjudicated juvenile.
  • The offender is deceased.
  • The offender is not a Michigan resident.
  • The offender’s conviction was not a listed offense requiring registration.
  • The offender’s conviction date was before October 1, 1995, and the offender was no longer involved with the criminal justice system for that offense at that time.
  • The offender was granted removal from the registry by a judge via court order.
  • The offender’s conviction requiring registration was set aside.
  • The offender is/was a participant in the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act (HYTA) program. 
  • The offender’s registration duration has ended.
  • The offender is registered for a single offense of one of the following offenses: 
    • MCL 750.520E (Adult victim)
    • MCL 750.520G2 (Adult victim)
    • MCL 750.10A
    • MCL 750.335A(2)(C)
    • MCL 750.449A(2)
    • Any violation of state law or local ordinance that by its nature constitutes a sexual offense against an individual who is less than 18 years of age.

I want to receive alerts or email notifications when there is a sex offender that moves into my neighborhood. How do I do so?

You do not need a lawyer for this. All you need to do is to access the Public Sex Offender Registry and click on “Email Alerts” for you to register on the website. 

According to the Michigan website, the following are some of the steps that you should follow to get alerts:

  • Select the radius you would like to search. Options include .25, .5, 1, 2, or 5 mile radiuses. Enter your home and email addresses. Home and email addresses are required so that the registry can provide you a notification when a registered sex offender moves, enrolls in school, or is employed within the radius of the address you have entered. Your email data will not be shared with any other individuals or organizations.
  • Check the box to acknowledge you agree with the “Terms of Use”. Click on “Submit”.
  • You will receive an email confirmation within 24 hours.
  • You can register multiple addresses with the same email account, i.e., sign up to be notified of offenders living within a radius of your home, school, employment, etc.

*These steps are lifted directly from the State of Michigan website, to prevent confusion.
