Jacksonville---The Daily Progress is reporting; of the 70 registered sex offenders in Cherokee County, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department found only four not in compliance to registry requirements.
U.S. Marshals along with the Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force and local probation officers helped deputies track-down offenders who are registered living in the county.
The Sheriff's Department told The Daily Progress; this means authorities can check-in on convicted offenders from time to time with follow-up visits and if non-compliance is an issue; officers can serve felony warrants.
