BILL NUMBER:S356 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the correction law, in relation to level three designation for certain sex offenders PURPOSE: To mandate that any offender required to register pursuant to the Sexual Offender Registration Act will be designated "level three" if their offense was committed against a child of ten years or less. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends paragraph (c) of subdivision 6 of section 168-1 of the correction law as amended by chapter 318 and 680 of the laws of 2005. JUSTIFICATION: The genesis of New York State's Sexual Offender Registration Act (SORA) is rooted in the tragic death of a young child at the hands of a repeat sexual predator in New Jersey. Communities under S0RA, have an expectation that they will be notified if a sexual predator resides in their midst. But, this is not necessarily so; in fact this is probably not the case. Notification is not mandatory and it has recently come to light that there is a massive 7800 case backlog with respect to risk assessment. This bill would mandate a "level three" designation for all offenders
