Sex offender registry; registration and reregistration.  Makes procedural changes to some of the registration and reregistration requirements set forth in the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry Act. Where current law requires registration or reregistration to take place within three days, the bill clarifies that this means business days. The bill also specifies that when a person is required to reregister within 30 minutes of a change to an electronic mail or Internet communication identity, and such reregistration takes place electronically, the reregistration is deemed to have occurred when the person sent the update, and not when it was received or opened by the law-enforcement agency. Finally, the bill requires the Department of State Police to develop a system for allowing electronic reregistration of email and other Internet communication identity information. Current law allows this to be done electronically, but no system exists to implement the provision. Read the Bill »
