Sex Offender Registry
Sumter County Sex Offender Registry manages and maintains more than 300 records for sex offenders. In South Carolina, sex offenders are categorized by tiers — Tier III offenders are convicted of the most serious offenses and Tier II offenders are convicted of lesser charges. Tier III offenders are requested to register quarterly and Tier II offenders must register bi-annually. Residential restrictions, set forth by S.C. Code 23-3-535(B), only apply to offenders with certain offenses. In part, the law states that certain offenders under residential restrictions cannot live within 1000 ft of a school, daycare center, children’s recreational facility, park, or public playground. Other restrictions could be set forth if the offender is under the supervision of S.C. Probation, Parole and Pardon Services.
