SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Sex Offender Registration Act and the Sex Offender and
Child Murderer Community Notification Law. Adds definition of
"juvenile sex offender"; adds definitions of "sexual predator",
"out-of-State student", and "out-of-State employee" and imposes
registration requirements on those persons. Takes into consideration
a criminal charge or conviction under the law of a foreign country.
Subjects sexually violent persons to the same requirements as sexually
dangerous persons. Requires a person convicted of murder against a
person under 18 to register for natural life (rather than for 10
years). Requires sexually violent persons and sexual predators to
register for natural life if not confined or, if confined, for 10
years after parole, discharge, or release. Authorizes a 10-year
extension of the registration period for failure to comply. Makes
other changes. Effective July 1, 1999.
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Provides that "juvenile sex offender" under both the Sex Offender
Registration Act and the Sex Offender and Child Murderer Community
Notification Law includes a person who is adjudicated a juvenile
delinquent as a result of adjudication as a sexually dangerous person
or sexually violent person or as a result of conviction of first
degree murder. In the definition of "out-of-State student", removes
the requirement of enrollment for a minimum period of time. Provides
that "out-of-State student" and "out- of-State employee" include
sexual predators as well as sex offenders. Requires a sex offender or
sexual predator to register with the chief of police of the
municipality in which he or she resides or is temporarily domiciled
for 10 or more days (rather than more than 10 days). Requires a
hospital or other facility that discharges a sex offender or sexual
predator to notify the Department of State Police within 3 days.
Requires a sexually violent person or sexual predator who is confined
to a penal institution or other facility to register for natural life
(rather than for a period of 10 years) after release from the
facility. Makes other changes.
