Tonight on Region 8 News at 10: tracking sex offenders in your neighborhood

Coming up on Region 8 News at Ten:

You would think a few clicks of the mouse would tell you if there are sex offenders living in your neighborhood.  Think again.  One man found out about a sex offender living near him only because we told him.  Arkansas' sex offender locator website is weeks and sometimes months behind.  That's plenty of time for a repeat offender to strike again.  But Arkansas is stepping up its efforts.  Craig Rickert has an in depth investigation on what the state is doing to fix the problem.

Also at ten:  Region 8 News has the latest on the Greene County Tech school bus accident.  Two buses collided late this afternoon.  Twenty-one students and one driver were sent to the hospital for minor injuries.  Lauren Payne is tracking that breaking news story.
