Judge Seeks Way to Repair Sex Offender List.

April 10, 2001

HARTFORD, April 9 The federal judge who ruled last week that Connecticut's online registry of sex offenders is unconstitutional requested today that the attorney general's office and the Connecticut Civil Liberties Union submit proposals to fix the problem.

Both sides in the case conferred by telephone this afternoon with Judge Robert N. Chatigny of United States District Court. The judge ruled last Monday that the Megan's Law registry violated the due process rights of nondangerous sex offenders. No new rulings or orders were issued.

The Web site, maintained by the State Department of Public Safety, includes photographs of more than 2,000 sex offenders. It went up in January 1999. The Connecticut Civil Liberties Union filed suit in February 1999, saying nondangerous offenders should be able to appeal their inclusion in the registry.
