Beware: These 12 Counties In Mississippi Have The Most Sex Offenders

If convicted of any kind of sex crime, registering as a sex offender is mandatory. This registry system not only benefits authorities but the general population as well, since the information is made public via the Internet. Taking population into consideration, HomeFacts.com compiled the number of each county’s registered sex offenders per 10,000 residents in addition to providing maps indicating the residences of registered offenders. Please note, the maps below have been slightly zoomed out so as not to pinpoint exact addresses.
