Beware: These 10 Counties In Michigan Have The Most Sex Offenders
Convicted sex offenders are required by law to register with the government, to include their names and addresses.

Using records obtained by Homefacts.com, we’re listing the 10 counties with the highest number of registered sex offenders per capita in Michigan.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.

Some of the numbers in these counties appear to be relatively low. Thing is, you have to take into consideration the population in each county. Consider this, in the most populous county of Wayne, 5,055 offenders are listed on the sex registry. That seems rather high, but with a population of about 1.9 million, it tempers those alarming numbers.
