(Oklahoma City-AP) -- A state lawmaker says juvenile sex offenders should be required to register with law enforcement officers in Oklahoma.

State Representative Larry Ferguson of Cleveland says he'll pre-file legislation for consideration by the Legislature that would do just that.

Ferguson says the goal of the legislation is to prevent another Oilton tragedy from happening.

Robert Wayne Rotramel is accused in the death of seven-year-old Kristi Blevins of Oilton and the rape of her 12-year-old friend.

Authorities say Rotramel has a juvenile record for forcible sodomy.

Ferguson says he'll be working on the legislation with state Senators Ted Fisher of Sapulpa, J. Berry Harrison of Fairfax, and state Representative Todd Hiett of Kellyville.
