Human rights group wants to change sex-offender registry rules

Group says juveniles' names shouldn't be public

NEW YORK -  

(AP) --  Human Rights Watch says government authorities should end of the practice of placing juveniles' names on publicly accessible sex-offender registries.
 
The group says such action could do lasting and unwarranted harm to some young people.
 
Right now, some juveniles are being placed on sex-offender registries even for sexting, sending nude photos of each other.
