Sex offender 'loophole to close'

[Ed: Gee, why not just make them "live" in the registration office since they will need to be checking in so often? ]

A loophole which allows sex offenders to slip off the police radar by declaring themselves homeless is to be closed, the justice secretary announced.

Kenny MacAskill said new laws will make sure registered offenders have to report to authorities weekly, daily, or even hourly, if supported by the Scottish Parliament.

"We'll be using the first available opportunity in the Criminal Justice and Licensing Bill to close it," he said.
