Georgia is set to become the go-to state for delinquent juveniles trying to escape the system, the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange reports. Unless the Legislature acts, Georgia on July 1 would be dropped from a new interstate compact and could become a “dumping ground for out-of-state delinquent juveniles,” including violent and sex offenders, one official said.
Georgia’s sex offender registries are inaccurate, outdated and incomplete, potentially misleading the public about the threat posed by offenders in their communities, state auditor Russell Hinton says. Data conflicts with information kept by local sheriffs, it’s not updated promptly and it’s often inaccurate, the auditors found.
