The Perry County Sheriff’s Office maintains a sex offender registry for those who reside within our jurisdiction.
Persons required to register as sex offenders are those who have been charged of an offense listed in Illinois Compiled States 730 ILCS 150/2(B) when such charge results in one of the following:
- A conviction for the commission of the offense or attempt to commit the offense,
- A finding of not guilty by reason of insanity of committing the offense or attempting to commit the offense, or
- A finding not resulting in an acquittal at a hearing for the alleged commission or attempted commission of the offense.
Individuals are included on the sex offender registry solely by virtue of their conviction record and Illinois State Law. The primary purpose of providing this information is to make it easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individuals.
Anyone who uses this information to commit a criminal act against another person is subject to criminal prosecution.
Information is updated regularly in an effort to assure that the information on the sex offender registry is complete and accurate; however, the Sheriff makes no representation, express or implied that the information is accurate. Offenders may have moved and failed to notify the Sheriff or local law enforcement agency as required by law. Additional information and verification can be obtained from the Sheriff’s Office or the local law enforcement agency where the sex offender resides.
If you have any questions about this sex offender registry please call (618) 357-5212.
