“Deputies were able to confirm 48 sex offenders are compliant, four are non-compliant, and 18 still need to be verified,” Patten said.

He said his deputies will verify the remaining 18 and any that are not in compliance with the law for registering will be arrested, along with the four already found that are not in compliance with the rules set by the courts.
