According to an article published on the Chicago Tribune Web site on July 05, the Illinois Senate is working to broaden and toughen Illinois’ sex-offender registry laws.

According to the published article, currently the Illinois law requires two convictions on a charge of luring children 16 or younger before a person must register as a sex offender. Now lawmakers are attempting to require first-time offenders to join the sex-offender registry.

Instant Checkmate, a leading background check provider, is anxiously awaiting to hear the Senate’s conclusion regarding implementing the new measure.

“Currently because of how things are set up in the state, hundreds of sex criminal were left on the streets to re-offend rather than be put behind bars or labeled as sex offenders,” said spokeswoman for Instant Checkmate, Kristen Bright. “Such a situation proves that you can never really know enough about anyone.”

Instant Checkmate offers a solution to the uncertainty that many parents face -- background checks. Since there is no law that requires first-time offenders to register as sex offenders, Instant Checkmate provides other background information that can raise red flags.

When it comes to a sex offender, Instant Checkmate explains that sex offenders can be charged with a multitude of crimes including sexual assault, rape, abuse, traffic, and many more. According to Instant Checkmate, all such crimes are related to sex in one way or another.

Instant Checkmate recommends parents background check everyone their children come in contact with, i.e. teachers, babysitters, neighbors, tutors, etc.

“Searching for sex offenders can protect both the children and their parents,” said Bright.
