Hoopa Valley Tribe to banish sex offenders from reservation

The Hoopa Valley Tribe of California is starting banishment proceedings against non-members who are sex offenders.

Based on information in a state registry, at least six non-member sex offenders live on the reservation, The Two Rivers Tribune reported. Another eight are members, two of whom are already in banishment proceedings in tribal court, the paper said.

Tribal law requires all sex offenders to register with tribal police. None have done so, Lieutenant Ed Guyer told the paper.
