A committee is talking about possible changes. Save Many southwest Missouri residents are seeking to better understand how convicted rapist and murder suspect David Zink, 41, of Osceola, slipped back into society so quietly after his release from federal prison earlier this year. According to Sheriff Ron Worsham, plans are to post the list online when the county has a Web site. Sixteen other states allow such access, according to the Center for Sex Offender Management. Counties also are required to send in the offender's registration card to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, which maintains the state's criminal records.

Most people do not suspect that their neighbor or their child's favorite teacher might have been convicted of a sex crime. Dallas County has 20 names on its list and Christian County has Some opponents of the law fear the lists could be and may have been misused by the courts in the convictions of people who did not commit a violent sex crime or victimize a child, but rather had committed a consensual sex act.
