Nebraska’s sex offender registery has about five-dozen fewer names on it this week.
A sex offender requested a hearing to be removed from the list and led the Nebraska State Patrol to realize that man -should- have been taken off the registry, along with 58 others.
When the registry was first set up, offenders had to register for ten years or for life, but the law was changed in 2010 and now requires offenders register for 15 years, 25 years or life.
The patrol reviewed all 3,800 cases that are listed and found 59 that were supposed to be removed but had been left on by mistake.
All 59 names were taken off, along with their mug shots, addresses and convictions.
