ATLANTA - A state audit shows that Georgia's sex offender registry contains numerous errors.

Auditors cited outdated computers, underfunding, understaffing and poor communication between government agencies.

The audit says the Georgia Bureau of Investigation takes too long to add out-of-state offenders, allowing cases to pile up. It says in-state offenders also aren't being listed or tracked in a timely fashion.

GBI spokesman John Bankhead says the two-person office running the registry is doing the best it can, and the GBI is aware of what it needs to fix. He says the issue is funding.
