Sex Offender Fee Changes Take Effect Next Month

There is some scam going on here, registry costs $600,000 and you would only need $50.00 from 12,000 registrants to cover the costs. So either there are 28,000 sex offenders in prison, or there is someone getting the extra fee income. Somewhere over 1 million dollars or so.
3-24-2014 Michigan:

Registered sex offenders in Michigan are required to pay an annual fee starting April 1.

Gov. Rick Snyder signed legislation in November requiring Michigan's more than 40,000 registered sex offenders to pay an annual $50 fee. The new fees are intended to cover the $600,000 a year cost to state police to operate the sex offender database.

The bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Rick Jones replaces the system under which sex offenders paid a one-time $50 fee.

The law only applies to registered sex offenders who are out of prison. People who prove that they are indigent can get a fee waiver.

Snyder says the law brings Michigan in line with neighboring states that require sex offenders to pay for the operating cost of sex offender websites. ..Source.. by
