A registered sex offender who served time in prison in Georgia does not want to sign up in Missouri. The individual, who now lives in southwest Missouir, has filed a lawsuit in southwest Missouri’s Webster County against the sheriff, the county prosecutor, and the superintendent of the State Highway Patrol. He says he was convicted before Missouri’s registry law was passed and therefore should not have to abide by the law.

The man is not identified in the lawsuit. He served three years in prison in the 1990s for two counts of child molestation.
