BILL NUMBER:S1390

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the correction law, in relation to the failure to register or
verify under the sex offender registration act
or violation of the prohibition of sex offenders working on
motor vehicles engaged in retail sales of frozen desserts

PURPOSE: This bill would increase the penalty for
failing to register
as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registry Act from a class A
misdemeanor to a class D felony.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends 168-t of the
correction law
providing for a felony for failure to register.

JUSTIFICATION: Numerous police agencies have
complained that sex
offenders are failing to register and/or update their registrations.
The penalty for failing to register the first time is presently only
a class A misdemeanor.

This bill would increase the penalty for failing to register to a
class D felony.

With this increased penalty, the police agencies feel that the
provisions of the Sex Offender Registration Act will be followed.
This will help the general public to know the whereabouts of sex
offenders in their area.
