RALEIGH - Sex trafficking could join the list of offenses that are included on the sex offender registry. Legislation that is headed to the Senate floor would require anyone convicted of kidnapping for the purpose of sexual slavery to join the list.

Senator Thom Goolsby of New Hanover County explains why the public should have that information

“When they are on the registry they are reported to the counties in which they live, their neighbors will know who they are. They’ll have to wear ankle bracelets and monitoring. It will put a crimp in their ability to traffic in sex.”

Some legislators were concerned that the measure might apply to people who were convicted of crimes that aren't sex offenses.
