BILL NUMBER:S6231

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the correction law, in relation to the
posting of registered sex offender's information

PURPOSE:

This bill changes the sex offender registry so that all crimes which
require registration under article six-c of the correction law appear
on said registry when a sex offender has been convicted in separate
incidences.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends section 168-q of the Correction Law to
make all crimes that require registration under article six-c of the
correction law available for public view in the sex offender registry.

Section 2 is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

Maintaining an up-to-date registry of sex offenders in the State is
necessary for the safety of all New Yorkers, A sex offender is any
person who commits an offense and is convicted of said offense under.
subdivision 2 or 3 of section 168-a of the Sex Offender Registration
Act. This act has helped local law enforcement agencies, as well as
the community, by having offenders register their names, current
addresses, and photographs with the State. However, while the current
registry holds much valuable information on sex offenders, it does not
always include all sexual offenses for which the offender has been
convicted. For example, currently, if a person were to be convicted of
third degree sexual abuse and first degree rape in two separate
incidences, only the most recent crime would appear in the registry.
These are two very different crimes with different levels of severity.
However, if a neighbor was to check the online sex offender registry,
he or she would have no way of knowing about the older rape
conviction. This bill would make available for public view all prior
convictions which require registration in the sex offender registry.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect on the one hundred twentieth day after it
shall have become a law.
