California Conditions of Use

Informational Only

The California Department of Justice has not considered or assessed the specific risk that any convicted sex offender displayed on this web site will commit another offense or the nature of any future crimes that may be committed.

Legal Limits on Disclosures

Only information on registered sex offenders allowed to be disclosed under California law appears on this web site. Under state law, some registered sex offenders are not subject to public disclosure, so they are not included on this site. State law does not allow offenses other than the crimes for which the convicted sex offender is required to register to be disclosed here.

Errors and Omissions

Information pertaining to schools, parks and street map data is obtained with permission of and through a license agreement with Thomas Bros. Map Company. Other information on this web site is compiled from reports by local law enforcement. Much of that information is gathered from persons who are required to register as sex offenders and to provide, at least once a year, their addresses and other information to local law enforcement. Because information can change quickly, and there may be gaps in data received, the California Department of Justice makes no representation, either express or implied, that the information on this site is complete or accurate. Neither the Department of Justice nor the State of California shall be held responsible for any errors or omissions on this web site or produced by secondary dissemination of this information.

Mistaken Identities

Extreme care must be taken in the use of information because mistaken identification may occur when relying solely upon name, age and address to identify individuals.

Notice of Corrections

If you believe that any information on this site is in error, please contact a police or sheriff's department, or contact the Department of Justice by e-mail at MegansLaw@doj.ca.gov.

Legal and Illegal Uses

The information on this web site is made available solely to protect the public. Anyone who uses this information to commit a crime or to harass an offender or his or her family is subject to criminal prosecution and civil liability. Any person who is required to register pursuant to Penal Code section 290 who enters this web site is punishable by a fine not exceeding $1,000, imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding six months, or by both the fine and imprisonment. (Pen. Code, § 290.46, subd. (h)(2).)
