Updates to Sexual Offender Registry

Brooke County Prosecutor Joseph Barki III reminds county residents that the West Virginia Department of Corrections regularly updates the sexual offender registry as part of the requirements by West Virginia state law.

Residents are reminded that it is not the intent of the State Legislature that the information provided to the public be used to inflict retribution or additional punishment on any person convicted of any offense requiring registration. The Act is not intended to be penal but regulatory in nature.
