Children Back in School After Being Charged with Sex Crimes

CBS Atlanta recently learned that children who are charged with sex crimes like child rape and molestation are being placed back into Georgia's classrooms. Hundreds of kids accused of sex crimes as juveniles have their records sealed and their identities hidden from the public and are returning to school.

For example, in Rockdale County, a 15-year-old boy was arrested in June for molesting a 5-year-old girl and the judge ordered for the child to be returned to school. The boy's father argued "He's not a bad kid. He just made a mistake", but other parents were outraged at the judge's decision. Georgia is one of eleven states that have not yet set up a sex offender registry for juveniles, and the state is currently passing up around one million dollars by failing to comply with federal regulations requiring it to do so.
