Memo

BILL NUMBER:S4146

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

PURPOSE: To implement changes to the sex offender registry, mandating that the registry contains information pertaining to the type of supervision(probation or parole) an offender receives and also contains information about the length of time of the assigned supervision.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: To amend Paragraph (c) of subdivision 1 of section 168-b of the correction law, as amended by chapter 11 of the laws of 2002 is amended by mandating that the Sex Offender Registry contains additional information such as type of assigned supervision and the length of time of such supervision, which shall also be actively maintained and updated to reflect any changes in an individual's treatment program.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently the Sex Offender Registry is maintained by the Division of Criminal Services (DCJS) and only provides the Maximum Expiration Date/post Release Supervision Date of Sentence. The Sex Offender Registry needs to be changed so that the length of time of assigned supervision is actively maintained and updated to reflect any changes in the Offender's treatment/supervision. In order to protect the interests of the individuals currently using the Sex Offender Registry to keep their families safe, this additional information should be mandated to be added and actively updated to ensure that the appropriate individuals know when an offender stops receiving supervision.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A.10777 (2010) Correction/Passed

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
