41 sex offenders live in Meade County

There are 41 sex offenders residing in Meade County currently listed on the Kentucky Sex Offender Registry – about one for every 120 students.

The age of the offenders span the gamut from a 22-year-old living on Battletown Road, to a 63-year-old in Guston charged with the rape and sexual abuse of a 12-year-old. Perhaps most shocking is an offender charged with sodomy whose victim was a four-year-old....

Offenders listed on the registry fall into three categories: lifetime registrants, whose addresses are updated every 90 days; and 10 and 20-year registrants whose addresses are verified annually.
Besides the updated list published in the Messenger, the registry is searchable online at http://kspsor.state.ky.us/.

There is also a map feature to locate predators near your address, and an option to sign up for e-mail alerts when an offender moves into your neighborhood.

In addition, up-to-date, real-time information regarding the release of registered sex offenders into local communities is available to the public through a new program developed by the Kentucky State Police in cooperation with the Department of Corrections and the Division of Child Abuse and Domestic Violence Services.

According to the state police, by placing a toll-free call to (866) 564-5652 and providing a telephone number, three zip codes may be chosen to monitor. This alert line is open 24 hours a day to set up alert preferences.

As soon as the Kentucky State Police receive notice that a registered sex offender is moving into one of the zip code areas entered, a notification call will be made to the number provided.
The Alert Line system will attempt calls every two hours for a 24-hour period beginning at 7 a.m. and ending at 9 p.m.

Calls will not be made between the hours of 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. to prevent children from receiving the call. The notification system is capable of leaving alerts on answering machines.
