IMPORTANT REMINDERS:
The information is made available for the purpose of protecting the public. It is not to be used for the purpose of harassing or intimidating anyone. A person who uses registry information to commit a criminal act against another person is subject to arrest and prosecution under Section 18-8326, Idaho Code.

The registry does not contain information on all sex offenders. The information is limited by the effective date of the registry (July 1, 1993) and to those offenders who have been convicted of a crime specified in the registry law. The registry does not contain information on those individuals whose illegal sexual behaviors have not come to the attention of the authorities. This listing refers to sexual offenses, and may not reflect the entire criminal history of a particular individual.

Positive identification of a person believed to be a sex offender cannot be established unless a fingerprint comparison is made.

ISP tries to assure that the information presented is accurate and current. Although ISP updates this site on a regular basis, the information can change quickly. You are cautioned that it is possible that information provided on this site may not reflect the current residence, status or other information regarding an individual.

If you believe that any of these records do not reflect the current residence of an offender or you believe any information found in these records is incorrect, please contact the Idaho Central Sex Offender Registry at P.O. Box 700, Meridian, ID 83680-0700, or e-mail: idsor@isp.state.id.us

WARNING: This information is made available for the purpose of protecting the public. It is not to be used for the purpose of harassing or intimidating anyone. A person who uses registry information to commit a criminal act against another person is subject to arrest and prosecution under Section 18-8326, Idaho Code.

Penalties for Misuse of Registry Information (Vigilantism)

It is the Legislature's intent that the sex offender registration program is a public safety program, not a punitive or correctional program. Any person who uses information from the registry to harm a registered sex offender commits a crime and is guilty of a misdemeanor, in addition to any other punishment for any associated crime(s).

Exemption from Civil Liablity. Section 18-8325 provides the following exemption from civil liability:

  1. No person or governmental entity, other than those specifically charged in this chapter with a duty to collect information under this chapter regarding registered sexual offenders, has a duty to inquire, investigate or disclose any information regarding registered sexual offenders.
  2. No person or governmental entity, other than those specifically charged in this chapter with an affirmative duty to provide public access to information regarding registered sexual offenders, shall be held liable for any failure to disclose any information regarding registered sexual offenders to any other person or entity.
  3. Every person or governmental entity who, acting without malice or criminal intent, obtains or disseminates information under this chapter shall be immune from civil liability for any damages claimed as a result of such disclosures made or received.
