The Revised Statutes of Missouri, Chapter 589 Sections 400 to 425 and 43.650, RSMo., mandate that the Missouri State Highway Patrol shall maintain a sex offender database and a web site on the Internet that is accessible to the public.
Additional information and verification may be obtained from the Chief Law Enforcement Official (Sheriff) of the county where the sex offender resides.
In the United States, the age of consent is the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to consent to participation in sexual activity.
Individuals aged 15 or younger in Arkansas are not legally able to consent to sexual activity, and such activity may result in prosecution for statutory rape.
When the highway patrol provides such information regarding a sexual offender, the patrol personnel shall advise the person making the inquiry that positive identification of a person believed to be a sexual offender cannot be established unless a fingerprint comparison is made, and that it is illegal to use such information regarding a registered sexual offender to facilitate the commission of a crime.
One or more of these charges may be used to prosecute violations of the Arkansas Age of Consent, as statutory rape or the Arkansas equivalent of that charge.
The severity of the criminal charge (felony, misdemeanor, etc) depends on the specifics of the acts committed and the relative ages of the perpetrator and victim.
