The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dick Sears, says he wants to put names and pictures of the state’s most dangerous sex offenders on the Internet. Currently, the public is only privy to sex offender information through the registry if they can prove the offender in question could directly affect them.

Vermont is one of just six states that don’t now provide an Internet-based sex offender registry. Vermont Center for Crime Victim’s Services supports the bill.
