The information in this registry is provided to MDPS by criminal justice agencies and representatives. MDPS has not assessed any specific risk of re-offense with regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion within this registry, and has made no determination that any individual included in the registry is currently dangerous. The reason for providing this information is to make it more easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individual. Individuals included within the registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction record and state law. Comparisons based on appearance may also be misleading, and cannot establish a positive identification without some possibility of error. This information is being made available on the Internet to facilitate public access to information about persons who have committed sex offenses to enable you to take appropriate precautions to protect yourself and those in your care from possible harm. You are cautioned that information provided on this site may not reflect the current residence, employment, school attendance, status, or other information regarding an offender. MDPS updates this information regularly, to try to assure that it is complete and accurate. As such, the registry may contain erroneous information. This information is made available for the purpose of protecting the public. MDPS is not responsible for any banners or other material that such providers may add to what you see on your computer screen while trying to view our site via a link provided by an outside enterprise. Positive identification of a person believed to be a sex offender cannot be established unless a fingerprint comparison is made. Any person who provides information to a law enforcement agency regarding a sex offender which the person knows to be false is subject to criminal prosecution. To correct erroneous information in the Mississippi Sex Offender Registry or to report a change in sex offender information, including a change of address, contact the MDPS via e-mail, mail or telephone at the below listed number and addresses. Persons who have been arrested or charged with a registrable sex offense or a child- victim oriented offense are not required to register unless the arrest or charge results in a conviction. Furthermore the database is compiled based, in part, upon information provided by the convicted offender and such information is not independently verified by MDPS.
