BILL NUMBER:S2211 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, the penal law and the family court act, in relation to providing juvenile offender status to persons thirteen, fourteen or fifteen years of age who have committed certain sex offenses PURPOSE: Expands juvenile offender status to include certain sex offenses committed by persons 13, 14, or 15 years of age. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The criminal procedure law, the penal law and the family court act are amended to establish that rape, sodomy, and aggravated sexual abuse are serious violent crimes, even when committed by persons as young as 13. Extension of the juvenile offender status to include this group of sex offenses will allow for stiffer penalties for offenders, and importantly, include young sex offenders in the Megan's Law Sex Offender Registry. JUSTIFICATION: Currently, the law does not adequately address the serious nature of violent acts committed by young sexual predators or the high rate of recidivism common to sex crimes. This legislation would change that by treating violent sex offenses as crimes worthy of serious punishment, and provide that young sexual predators be included in the Megan's Law Sex Offender Registry so that the appropriate authorities are able to track these criminals as they enter the age of majority.
