Serial Rapist Caught Living in Woodbury. Broken MN Law Only Requires Him to Register until 2020

MN sex offender laws are the weakest in the Country. Over 17,000 registered sex offenders live in the shadows with records hidden from the public unless you know their full name and birth date to look up their criminal record. The worst offenders, Level 3, are listed but it's of little value because their registered address is hidden so we don't know where they live.

Just the "general vicinity" of some cross streets. Rapists and Child Predators are all over the County. There were 280 living in Washington County back in 2012 according to a article. The effects are undeniable here: Watchdog Review of Each of the Fifty States Sex Offender Laws Finds Minnesota Ranked the Most Unsafe.

Here's another example. A convicted serial rapist named Herbert Carl Hubbard had been living at the Key Inn Hotel in Woodbury, formerly known as the Red Roof Inn. According to the Criminal Complaint the level 3 sex offender, Hubbard was convicted of Third Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct in 1992 AND in 1999 in Dakota County. He was caught when his probation officer looked into if he was living where he had registered. Many of the nearly 300 level 3 sex offenders in MN avoid the public eye on the already vague MN registry by claiming they are homeless like Hubbard claims.  In addition, our broken laws in MN only require him to register as a sex offender until 2020 despite being convicted TWICE! 

-26 states have life registration for ALL 3 levels of sex offenders on their state's public website listing their names, exact address, crime, etc. 
-9 additional states do the same life registration on public website with exact address etc except level 1 offenders register for 10 to 20 years.
-11 more states have Life Registration on public website for level 3; level 2 registered for 25 years; and level 1 for 15 years. Posting their photo, exact address, crime, etc (not listing level 1 addresses)
-Of the remaining 4 states Only Minnesota does not list level 2 and 1 sex offenders.
-Only Vermont with only 1,300 sex offenders, Maine with only 2,700 sex offenders, and Minnesota with over 17,000 sex offenders do not post the exact address of sex offenders. (yet Vermont requires all offenders to register for life)

- Minnesota is dead last for sex offender laws because only level 3 offenders register for Life (not always as example with Hubbard here) posting just the cross streets of the block they live on. Level 2 and 1 not listed and they have weak ten year max on registry
