There’s been a major development in the wake of a Scripps News Investigation featured in a DecodeDC podcast last December. Congress has now passed legislation that requires the Department of Defense to register sex offenders directly with an FBI database available to civilian law enforcement agencies and the Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender Public Website prior to an offender’s release from a military prison. A Scripps News Investigation found hundreds of convicted military sex offenders flying under the radar who did not appear on the sex offender registries created to alert the public and prevent repeat crimes. Of 1,312 cases, at least 242 were not on any public U.S. sex offender registry. In this podcast, DecodeDC Andrea Seabrook talks with Mark Greenblatt, Scripps News Investigative Correspondent, about the story behind the investigation.
