BILL NUMBER: S1300

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the correction law, the executive law and the penal
law, in relation to certain residency requirements for sex offenders


PURPOSE :
To prohibit sex offenders from moving to a residence that is within
1000 feet of any school building regularly used for instructional
purposes, a building in which child day care is provided or a park.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :
Section 1: Section 168-b of the correction law is amended by adding a
new subdivision 12 to read as follows: 12. The division, when
acknowledging initial registration and thereafter in annual
correspondence, shall advise each sex offender, to whom the residency
restriction in section one hundred sixty-eight-w of this article
applies, concerning the terms and specific duration of such
restriction.

Section 2: Section 168-t of the correction law, as amended by chapter
373 of the laws of 2007, is amended to include in the penalty section
that a violation of section one hundred sixty-eight-v or subdivision
one of section one hundred sixty-eight-w of this article shall be
guilty of a class A misdemeanor upon conviction for the first offense,
and upon conviction for a second or subsequent offense shall be guilty
of a class D felony.

Section 3: section 168-w of the correction law, as relettered by
chapter 604 of the laws of 2005, is relettered section 168-x and a new
section 168-w is added.

Section 4: Section 259-c of the executive law is amended by adding a
new subdivision 18.

Section 5: Section 65.10 of the penal law is amended by adding a new
subdivision 6.

Section 6: Sets the enactment date.

JUSTIFICATION :
Throughout New York State, municipalities have enacted residency
requirement legislation to keep sex offenders away from children.
Recent court action has created the need for a uniform state standard
to protect children from dangerous sexual predators. This legislation
would create this standard.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it shall have
become a law and shall apply to sex offenders convicted or released on
or after such date.
