DIGEST OF SB471 (Updated February 15, 2007 3:41 pm - DI 84)
Sex offenders. Requires persons convicted of certain crimes concerning prostitution by minors and human sexual trafficking of minors to register as a sex offender. Exempts from registration as a sex offender: (1) a person convicted of sexual misconduct with a minor if the person is less than five years older than the victim; and (2) a person convicted of kidnapping or confining a minor if the person is the parent or guardian of the victim and the crime was not committed for sexual purposes. Requires both sexually violent predators and sex offenders who are not sexually violent predators to register within 72 hours of a release or address change (under current law, sex offenders who are not sexually violent predators may register within seven days). Requires a local law enforcement authority to provide sex offender registration information to the National Crime Information Center sex offender registry file, requires sex offenders to include certain additional details when registering, and requires registering to be done in person in most cases. Provides that sex offenders without a permanent or temporary residence must register in person every seven days and provide the location where they will be staying. Adds certain offenses to the definition of "offender against children," requires offenders against children to register for life, prohibits an offender against children from working in certain locations, and provides a means for individuals designated as offenders against children to have this designation removed. Requires a person convicted of an offense to be fingerprinted unless the person was already fingerprinted, and requires a sheriff to insure that a sex offender's fingerprints are on file and to fingerprint the sex offender if the fingerprints are not on file. Makes certain other changes.
