Tom O'Sullivan for comment. In the first interview, O'Sullivan said he was confident that his team was on top of the issue; "At this point, we're able to effectively monitor that list, most of the offenders are compliant, they do what they're supposed to do, and they register on time," he said. Most of the offenders in violation had charges of sodomy or child molestation of children ages 14 to 4 years old, yet on the highway patrol's website they're marked compliant. It is not the local sheriff's department's job to move each offender if they are in violation; however, the department is expected to investigate whether the registered sex offenders are breaking the law and update that information. When asked if people were checking out the website, he said, "Oh absolutely, we have two detectives that monitor these guys. The law keeps changing - but currently Missouri statutes require: Ridgeway Elementary is one of ten schools with violating offenders living nearby Check out your neighborhood with our interactive map: The grandfather clause means that the offender would have had already established a residence before the school opened and notified law enforcement within one week of it opening. Hotz about who is responsible for checking into whether offenders are compliant, and where they can or can't live, he said: The two live right across the street from Wayne's school, Ridgeway Elementary. Jessica Luebbert said she is always thinking about the safety of her nine-year-old son Wayne. The Target 8 team found at least 11 registered sex offenders living too close to 10 elementary, middle, and preschools in Columbia. Hotz declined to comment on whether the team updates information if it checks into if offenders are in violation, as indicated on the website. However, this statute has a number of exceptions listed. However, CPS did release this statement: In this case, all 11 offenders were charged after the elementary schools were founded. O'Sullivan mentioned a Missouri Supreme Court decision, pending litigation, and what's referred as the "grandfather clause" as other possible reasons there may be non-compliant offenders near schools.
