You Are on My List


A large and growing number of people on Georgia's sex offender list are not sex offenders. The law says that anyone who is convicted of false imprisonment or kidnapping a minor will be placed on the list. Take Darnelle Harvey. Almost 20 years ago, he robbed a restaurant and told a 16-year-old to lie down on the floor. That got him a false imprisonment conviction. So he's listed as a sex offender, making it illegal for him to live or work within 1,000 feet of a school, park, recreation center, or other place where children may gather.
