MAT-SU - The state's Sex Offender Registry Web site was reactivated at 3 p.m.
Thursday, after the Alaska Department of Public Safety removed the names of
individuals whose offenses were committed prior to 1994.
Commissioner Glenn G. Godfrey of the Alaska Department of Public Safety on
Jan. 18 ordered the Web site off line after U.S. District Court Judge H. Russel
Holland issued a preliminary injunction enjoining the state from the enforcement of
the Alaska Sex Offender Registration Act against people whose crimes were
committed before Aug. 10, 1994.
The Web site is now limited to information about convicted offenders who
committed qualifying offenses on or after Aug. 10, 1994.
