Memo

BILL NUMBER:S1073

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the correction law, in relation to defining residence under the sex offender registry act

PURPOSE: This bill would define residency under the sex offender registry act in order to enhance public safety.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Defines residency as any place of abode, domicile or inhabitance where a convicted sex offender spends or intends to spend more than two days a week.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently sex offenders are required to register at their primary residence which leaves a significant loophole that is often exploited. A sex offender can easily register at one residence and yet still spend a significant amount of time at another location. This situation allows a sex offender to essentially register at one address and live somewhere else. Which violates the spirit and intent of the sex offender registry and endangers the public. This legislation seeks to close this loophole in the law by defining residence, and thereby requiring a convicted sex offender to affirmatively comply with the intent of the law in any location that he or she spends more than two days a week.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S1194; Referred to Correction

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately
