    AN ACT concerning sex offenders.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Sex Offender Registration Act is amended by
changing Section 7 as follows:
 
    (730 ILCS 150/7)  (from Ch. 38, par. 227)
    Sec. 7. Duration of registration. A person who has been
adjudicated to be sexually dangerous and is later released or
found to be no longer sexually dangerous and discharged, shall
register for the period of his or her natural life. A sexually
violent person or sexual predator shall register for the period
of his or her natural life after conviction or adjudication if
not confined to a penal institution, hospital, or other
institution or facility, and if confined, for the period of his
or her natural life after parole, discharge, or release from
any such facility. Any other person who is required to register
under this Article shall be required to register for a period
of 10 years after conviction or adjudication if not confined to
a penal institution, hospital or any other institution or
facility, and if confined, for a period of 10 years after
parole, discharge or release from any such facility. A sex
offender who is allowed to leave a county, State, or federal
facility for the purposes of work release, education, or
overnight visitations shall be required to register within 5
days of beginning such a program. Liability for registration
terminates at the expiration of 10 years from the date of
conviction or adjudication if not confined to a penal
institution, hospital or any other institution or facility and
if confined, at the expiration of 10 years from the date of
parole, discharge or release from any such facility, providing
such person does not, during that period, again become liable
to register under the provisions of this Article. Reconfinement
due to a violation of parole or other circumstances that
relates to the original conviction or adjudication shall extend
the period of registration to 10 years after final parole,
discharge, or release. Reconfinement due to a violation of
parole or other circumstances that do not relate to the
original conviction or adjudication shall toll the running of
the balance of the 10-year period of registration, which shall
not commence running until after final parole, discharge, or
release. The Director of State Police, consistent with
administrative rules, shall extend for 10 years the
registration period of any sex offender, as defined in Section
2 of this Act, who fails to comply with the provisions of this
Article. The registration period for any sex offender who fails
to comply with any provision of the Act shall extend the period
of registration by 10 years beginning from the first date of
registration after the violation. If the registration period is
extended, the Department of State Police shall send a
registered letter to the law enforcement agency where the sex
offender resides within 3 days after the extension of the
registration period. The sex offender shall report to that law
enforcement agency and sign for that letter. One copy of that
letter shall be kept on file with the law enforcement agency of
the jurisdiction where the sex offender resides and one copy
shall be returned to the Department of State Police.
