[The Chosun Ilbo, November 23 2007] More Info on Sex Offenders Available Next Year

The Government Youth Commission announced Wednesday that the Juvenile Sex Protection Act will be modified to improve the protection of children from sex crimes.


However, starting Feb. 4 caretakers of children such as parents and teachers will be able to easily access offenders' personal data through the local police station and online through the Youth Commission's website.


For instance in the U.S., the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act signed by the president last year organizes all sex offenders into three categories in which the highest-level offenders must register and update their address every three months.
