Ind. Law - More on "Marion County repairs sex offender registry"

Updating this ILB entry from Sunday, quoting Alex Campbell's front-page story that began:

A week after The Indianapolis Star exposed numerous errors on Marion County's portion of the state sex offender registry, the sheriff's office has made good on its pledge to do something:

It has wiped away many of the mistakes. ***

Marion County Sheriff John Layton completely removed [more than 523 offenders] from the registry in one fell swoop last week. In an instant he fixed dozens of the accuracy problems exposed by The Star.

Today Campbell posts in the Star blog, Star Watch, a copy of the graceful letter that "Marion County Sheriff John Layton wrote to The Star in the wake of April 15′s story detailing the errors." Definitely worth a read.
