Bill would require registration for juvenile sex offenders.

State Capital Bureau

A bill that requires juvenile sex offenders to register with their county goes to the Governor. Karyn Dest reports from Jefferson City.

The bill passed easily in both the House and Senate.

If Governor Carnahan signs it, sex offenders under twenty-one would have ten days to register with county officers.

Democratic Representative Phil Smith of Louisiana says the registration requirement is appropriate.
