BILL NUMBER: S1194

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


PURPOSE :
This bill would define residency under the sex offender registry act
in order to enhance public safety.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section 1. Defines residency as any place of abode, domicile or
inhabitance where a convicted sex offender spends or intends to spend
more than two days a week.

JUSTIFICATION :
Currently sex offenders are required to register at their primary
residence which leaves a significant loophole that is often exploited.
A sex offender can easily register at one residence and yet still
spend a significant amount of time at another location. This
situation allows a sex offender to essentially register at one address
and live somewhere else. Which violates the spirit and intent of the
sex offender registry and endangers the public. This legislation
seeks to close this loophole in the law by defining residence, and
thereby requiring a convicted sex offender to affirmatively comply
with the intent of the law in any location that he or she spends more
than two days a week.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
This is a New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect immediately
