Registered sex offenders to pay annual fee

LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Registered sex offenders must start paying an annual fee to the state Tuesday.

The legislation was signed by the governor back in November.

Some 40,000 registered sex offenders in Michigan will have to pay an annual fee of 50-dollars.

The hope is to cover the $600,000 a year cost to state police to operate the sex offender database.

The law only applies to those currently out of prison.

Those that can prove they are indigent can get a fee waiver.
