Thirty-seven South Dakotans have been removed from the state's registry of sex offenders

Thirty-seven South Dakotans have been removed from the state's registry of sex offenders.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says all 37 had been convicted of misdemeanor indecent exposure. Their names were purged automatically in accordance with a new state law.

Lawmakers created a tiered system that allows people convicted of lesser sex offenses to be removed by petition either 10 or 25 years after their conviction. Jackley had argued that misdemeanor offenders on the list should be required to petition as well, but lawmakers overruled him.

Jackley says two petitions for removal have been delivered to his office but lawyers are still reviewing the requests.

Sex offenders deemed high risk, such as those convicted of violent rape or child molestation, can never get off the list.

Finally, some sense is made for the oppressive sex offender laws.
