Provides that a child is a child in need of services (CHINS) if the child resides in Indiana and the child: (1) is found to be a CHINS in another jurisdiction; (2) commits an act in another jurisdiction that would make the child a CHINS if the act were committed in Indiana; and (3) is subject to acts or conditions in another jurisdiction in which the child would be considered a CHINS if the acts or conditions were to take place in Indiana. Allows a court to order a person to register as a sex offender as a condition of probation for not longer than five years. Makes conforming changes.
