SD has low non-compliant rate among sex offenders


South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley announced Wednesday that the compliancy rate for registered sex offenders is 98.7% across the state.

Right now, 3,027 sex offenders live within the state with just 40 identified instances of non-compliance.

State law requires those convicted of sex crimes to register as a sex offender within three business days of coming into any county to reside. Additional state law requires sex offenders to reregister every six month.

"Keeping the public and children safe is the ultimate goal of the South Dakota's sex offender registry," said Jackley. "This remarkably low non-complaint rate is the result of the attentive work of law enforcement and these individuals should be commended."

South Dakota's Sex Offender Registry was the fourth state in the nation to become certified. To be certified the State must substantially implement the provision of SORNA. To date, South Dakota is only one of sixteen states whose registries have met the national SORNA certification requirements.
