40 sex offenders registered in Pontotoc County

A person convicted of a sex crime is branded for life, no matter which state they lived in at the time of conviction, it is up to that person to register with the local sheriff’s department. In the past several years the laws in Mississippi have changed. Today, sex offenders have to report their address every 90 days even if they have lived at the same address for many years. When a person is either convicted by the courts or pleads guilty to a sex crime, they have to register with the sheriff’s department and the sheriff forwards this information on to the Mississippi Department of Corrections. When a person pleads guilty or is convicted of a sex crime, there is no time cut short for good behavior or early parole. If they are sentenced to 30 years or life, the sentence has to be served day for day. Today, according to the national predatory database, there are 40 people registered in Pontotoc County.
