Anita Belle's granddaughter accused her spanking her, prompting an investigation by Michigan's Child Protective Services (CPS). The investigation cleared her of abuse.

Those people haven't necessarily been charged with, much less convicted of any crimes. And many people aren't even aware their names are on the list, since all it takes is one CPS worker to decide they should be on there to end up on the list.
