Post Missouri House Bill 146 - Do you agree or disagree?


HB 146 -- Purchase of Real Estate by a Registered Sexual Offender

Sponsor: Davis

This bill specifies that any person required to register as a
sexual offender who makes an offer to purchase any real estate to
disclose his or her status as a registered sexual offender to his
or her buyer's agent. The buyer's agent must disclose in writing
to the seller or seller's agent the buyer's status as a registered
sexual offender prior to the sale of any property, provided the
buyer has disclosed such status as required by these provisions.
Within 30 days after closing on the property, the buyer's agent
must also notify in writing all residents located within a one-half
mile radius of the property that a registered sexual offender is
residing on the newly-purchased property, provided the buyer's
agent has knowledge of the buyer's status as a registered sexual
offender.

My opinion is that there is already a Missouri registry that SO's have to register with so any neighbor can look to see who a new neighbor is so why put someone that is TRULY rehabilitated through such hardship. Also, what this does is cause fear in the neighborhood that may be unwarranted. Those that are sex offenders for petty crimes (like mooning or peeing in public) should not be included in this law. The state should revise the sex offender categories before imposing laws that would cause others to pre-judge someone before knowing what really happened.
