  The Hopkinton Police offers information pertaining to Sex Offenders as a service to our residents.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding a possible sex offender please contact one of our Detectives @ 508.497.3401.  This number is NOT for emergency use.

WHAT IS A SEX OFFENDER?

A sex offender is any person who resides, works or attends an institution of higher learning in the Commonwealth and who has been convicted of a sex offense, or who has been adjudicated as a youthful offender or as a delinquent juvenile by reason of a sex offense, or a person released from incarceration or parole or probation supervision or custody with the department of youth services for such a conviction or adjudication, or a person who has been adjudicated a sexually dangerous person or a person released from civil commitment on or after August 1, 1981.

Sex offenders will be classified according to the degree of dangerousness they pose to the public and their likelihood for re-offense. An offender's classification will be:
  • a Level 1 or "low risk" offender,
  • a Level 2 or "moderate risk" offender, or
  • a Level 3 or "high risk" offender.
In addition, if the Board, in finally giving an offender a Level 3 classification, also concludes that such sex offender should be designated a Sexually Violent Predator, the Board shall transmit a report to the sentencing court explaining the Board's reasons for so recommending, including specific identification of the sexually violent offense committed by such sex offender and the mental abnormality from which he suffers. The sentencing court shall then have the ultimate decision to determine whether such sex offender is a sexually violent predator.

Obtaining Information About Sex Offenders Living/Working In Your Community

Any member of the public who is at least 18 years of age or older may request sex offender information. The information will be provided to any person who is seeking the information for his/her own protection or for the protection of a child under the age of 18 or for the protection of another person whom the requesting person has responsibility, care, or custody.

You may request sex offender information at the Hopkinton Police Department or through the Sex Offender Registry Board directly.   The Board also intends to post Level 3 sex offender information on the Board’s Internet Web site but is awaiting the approval of the Superior Court. 
 


Penalties For Improper Use Of Sex Offender Registry Information
Information contained in the Sex Offender Registry shall not be used to commit a crime against an offender or to engage in illegal discrimination or harassment of an offender. Any person who improperly uses Sex Offender Registry information shall be punished by not more than two and one-half years in the house of correction or by a fine of not more than $1,000 or by both such fine and imprisonment.
