Level 1 sex offenders are not listed on Washington state sex offender registry. Donna Zink requested to get information on level 1 offenders and received it. However, the court sent a copy of Zink’s request, including her personal information, to the sex offenders whose information she was requesting. Donna and Jeff Zink have sued Benton County for distributing this information. A lower court rejected their claims and so the Zinks appealed. They have lost their appeal.
