KENNEWICK, Wash. – A judge is deciding whether people should have access to detailed records of low-level sex offenders.
The Tri-City Herald reports the judge heard arguments Friday in Benton County Superior Court.
A woman requested copies of records that include names, birthdays, phone numbers, pictures and more for Level 1 sex offenders.
Level 1 offenders are the least likely to re-offend.
Lawyers for the offenders argue they’ll face harm if the files are released.
