SALEM, Ore. — Oregon has one of the worst records in the country for following federal standards intended to keep registered sex offenders under supervision.

The state has become a haven for offenders dodging stricter rules in other states, and one reason may be because the state is two years behind

entering names into its electronic database of registered sex offenders. Oregon is among four states that have done the least to comply with

registration and community notification guidelines.
