The offenders found to be sexually violent predators are committed to the South Carolina Department of Mental Health in an intensive treatment program, and their mental status is reviewed annually to determine if they are safe to be at large. If released from treatment, the offenders must register as a sexually violent predator on the South Carolina Sex Offender Registry for life. Their registration and photograph must be updated every 90 days.
How You Can Help
The public is encouraged to check the Sex Offender Registry often to identify the sex offenders living in the area. The Registry specifically indicates whether an offender is a sexually violent predator under the Act. Also, it is important to notify local law enforcement if a registered Sex Offender/Predator is seen loitering near places children or other potential victims congregate.
