A registry listing repeat family violence offenders in Guam is going public.

Pacific Daily News said the registry had been in the works for nearly three years. It was scheduled to be launched on Monday (local time).

A 2011 law created through a bill introduced by territorial Senator Dennis Rodriguez requires the Office of the Attorney General to keep a database of those convicted of at least two family violence offenses. A person could be placed on the registry for a first offense in some cases, such as crimes involving deadly weapons.

Carlina Charfauros, a spokeswoman for the office, says the registry will be retroactive to 2011. Someone convicted before 2011 and after also would be listed.

In cases where a conviction is expunged, the offender could be removed from the list.
