Representative Jones to FOX Undercover: Change Needed at Sex Offender Registry Board

In case you missed it, House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) was recently interviewed by FOX Undercover’s Mike Beaudet.

As you may know, Representative Jones has filed legislation that would, in part, not only make Level One sex offender information public upon inquiry, but would also create harsher penalties for those individuals who commit sexual crimes against children.

The legislation would also address the current loophole that allows just one member of the Sex Offender Registry Board to decide the initial classification of a convicted sex offender. The North Reading legislator has also included language in his bill that would require a majority of the board to agree on the initial classification.
