Woman Falsely Listed As Sex Offender for 5 yrs

April 5, 2009

kbmt12.com : DPS Accidentally Posts Woman’s Name As Sex Offender For 5 Years.

Ft. Worth, Texas (AP) – The Texas Department of Public Safety has apologized for posting a Dallas woman’s name and photo erroneously on the state’s sex offender Web site for nearly five years.

She said she’s consulting with lawyers about what her next move should be, if any. Her name apparently was posted on the Web site in 2003. That’s when the then-13-year-old girl was detained on a minor trespassing complaint.

Now 20, Marquez said she learned of her listing when she tried to rent a new apartment and the management denied her application. They cited her status as a registered sex offender. Marquez is a mother of two and a criminal justice student at Remington College in Garland.
