Prosecutors say sex offender remains on registry

The Associated Press

CONCORD — New Hampshire prosecutors say a sex offender convicted in 1987 should not be removed from a requirement that he register for life based solely on a recent state Supreme Court ruling.

The offender — who is allowed to proceed as John Doe by court order — earlier this month waved a hearing on whether he is a danger to the public. But his lawyers argue that merely being eligible to be removed from the list should pave the way for Doe to get his status changed and the federal housing he desires.

In court documents filed Thursday, prosecutors say having the opportunity to be removed from the sex offender registry is not the same as actually being removed. They are fighting any change in his status without a dangerousness hearing.
