Wayland is home to three Level 2 sex offenders, according to the state Sex Offender Registry Board website.

Massachusetts has three classification levels for sex offenders, Level 3 being for the most severe offenders.

Level 2 and 3 sex offenders pose a moderate or high risk of reoffense, respectively, according to the state. For both levels, “the degree of dangerousness posed to the public is such that a public safety interest is served by public availability of registration information,” according to the state.

More information on Wayland’s Level 3 sex offenders, including names, addresses and photos, can be found on the state and town websites.

Note that the state's sex offender registry list does not distinguish between offenders who work or live in the town. For a more detailed breakdown, visit the national registry and plug in the town/city zip code.

Misleading headline. Level 2 offenders are considered moderate risk offenders. Level 3 are considered high risk offenders. There are currently no level 3 offenders living or working in Wayland.

"Note that the state's sex offender registry list does not distinguish between offenders who work or live in the town." So clearly this reporter did nothing more than check a website, which came up with the number 3. Yet the headline still reads "living" in Wayland. I shouldn't be surprised. I'm fairly certain Patch reporters are nothing more than stay-at-home-moms with internet access.

"For a more detailed breakdown, visit the national registry and plug in the town/city zip code." Not sure the reporter even clicked on this, as it has no information about Massachusetts.

I agree with Harvey Silverglate who once observed that sex offender registries punishment not for what someone has done (he/she served their sentence), but what some bureaucrat thinks an offender might do in the future. This used to be considered unconstitutional.
