The Mississippi Sex Offender Registry is a public website that allows you to search for all sex offenders who have been required to register or who are pre-registered under the provisions of Megan’s Law Mississippi.
This information is provided to assist the public in protecting themselves from sex offenders. Please use this information to help you decide where you or your children should live, visit, or attend school.
If you were convicted of an offense requiring registration in Mississippi, your duty to register is triggered three different times: When you are released from incarceration or detention; when you are released on parole, probation or sentenced to serve a term of home confinement due to conviction of an offense requiring registration in the state; and upon being released after serving the entire sentence.
To register as a sex offender, complete the registration paperwork with the responsible agency and return that paperwork to your local MDPS driver’s license station. Pedestrians can also stop by the office at any time during normal business hours and complete the process at our counter.
Persons convicted in other states or jurisdictions for an offense that is registerable in Mississippi must register with MDPS when they move into the state of Mississippi. Offenders that move out of the state remain on the Registry even after moving to another jurisdiction and registering there as required by law. The law requires the Registry to note that the registrant moved out of state.
The most important provisions of the MS Megan’s Law includes the following. The law required offenders to provide information about their name, address, employer, victim’s name, Social Security number and description of the crime committed against each of their victims. The law also requires persons convicted of certain specified sex offenses to submit a DNA sample to be placed in State and Federal DNA databases for use in identification purposes.
