Iowa’s list of sex offenders is about to get a lot shorter. Today marks the tenth anniversary of Iowa’s sex offender registry. Those criminals who are convicted of various sex crimes are required to keep their address, mug shot and a host of information on the registry up to date — some for ten years, others for life. The first offenders who were put on the list are now potentially eligible to be taken off. That’s about two-thousand names of the nearly 66-hundred. Reviews will start next week. State officials will weigh a variety of factors before removing a name — things like whether the person committed another sex crime since being put on the list.
