Virginia WTVR Vicious Cycle of Hyping Sex Offenders Among Us: This Weeks Story WTVR Spins One Absconded Unregistered Sex Offender into an Exaggerated Statewide Crisis of Unregistered Offenders Roaming the State Because Virginia Laws Aren't Sufficient.


I emailed the below to WTVR last night.

Dear Mr. St. George of WTVR, 

Really? Another fear-mongering Sex Offender story. You may be surprised at how often Va. sex offenders go unregistered http://wtvr.com/2015/07/06/you-may-be-surprised-by-how-often-va-sex-offenders-go-unregistered/ 

I have to say WTVR really might be the worst at routinely hyping Registered Sex Offenders in the Commonwealth. 

Your story says “Right now registration is mailed every 90 days and for some it is hard to keep track.”
