PAM LYNCHNER SEXUAL OFFENDER TRACKING AND IDENTIFICATION ACT

In 1990, in Houston, Texas, Pam Lynchner, a real estate agent, was attacked and sexually assaulted while showing a house to a prospective buyer. The attacker was sent to prison for twenty years, but came up for parole after two years. He then filed a lawsuit against Pam. This enraged Pam, who then became a victim's advocate and fought for tougher laws and to keep criminals in jail. Pam tragically died in July 1006, crash of TWA Flight 800. However Pam's fight for tougher laws did not go unnoticed or unrecognized. In 1997, Federal law titled, "The Lynchner Act", mandated the Federal Bureau of Investigation to establish and maintain a national Sex Offender Registry by 1999 that is to be interactive with all state registries. This database is also to be used to track the whereabouts and movements of sex offenders across the United States.

This 1996 law requires the U.S. Attorney General to establish a national database for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to track the whereabouts of certain sex offenders and people who have committed crimes against children (42 U.S.C. § 14072 and 14073). The law speaks of states with a “minimally sufficient sexual offender registration program” (Subsection (a).

The law requires sex offenders covered by its provision and in a state that does not have a minimally sufficient program to register with the FBI (Subsection (c). The FBI must periodically verify their address (Subsection (e), and it may release information necessary to protect the public (Subsection (f).

The law also contains provisions concerning notification to the FBI and state agencies when a person subject to registration moves to another state (Subsection (g). These provisions appear to apply to all states, including those without a minimally sufficient program.

The immunity provision for this law reads as follows:
State and federal law enforcement agencies, employees of State and Federal law enforcement agencies, and state and federal officials shall be immune from liability for good faith conduct under section 14072 of this title (42 U.S.C. § 14073).



Background

The U.S. Congress passed three laws that require States to keep track of sex offenders; the Wetterling Registration Act, the Lynchner Tracking and Identification Act and Megan’s Law. On March 5, 2003, The Supreme Court ruled that information about potential predators may be posted on the Internet.


The Problem

The information is available and you have the right to see it. But the problem is that access is very difficult. You have to know the name of the individual you are looking for and in many States you must go to your police station and complete a request form. In some States there is a fee and limit to view only two names
