Guam - Guam is now the seventh jurisdiction to implement the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. The Guam Attorney General's Office made the announcement today that it has completed the framework needed to be in compliance with this act. Deputy Attorney General for the Family Division Carol Hinkel-Sanchez says for the past three years the probation office has been keeping a strict record of sex offenders on Guam, adding that legislation was passed in December of last year to help them accomplish their efforts.

"Ensuring we're compliant with what is mandated not only to us but of informing the sex offenders that need to register of their rights and responsibilities," she explained.

Attorney General Leonardo Rapadas adds that this effort ensures that the island will not become a hiding place for convicted sex offenders and child molesters.
