The statute may be found on the New York State Senate website - New York Laws, Corrections Law 168.Anyone who was on parole or probation or incarcerated for a sex offense on January 21, 1996, must register as a sex offender with the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services ("DCJS").The new rule, which comes on the heels of a decision from the California Supreme Court that found the Jessica’s Law residency restrictions unconstitutional as applied in San Diego County, stands out as one of the only policy changes in memory that makes life for sex offenders in the United States easier rather than harder. I just wrote this book on it, and I can’t think of any other example—except for small little triumphs, like in Orange, California, where they defeated a proposed law where registered sex offenders would have had to put a sign on their front doors that said “Sex offender at this residence, no candy or treats allowed.” That ordinance was successfully fought back.To put the move in perspective, I called Emily Horowitz, a criminologist at St. They said they’re going to look at sex offenders individually, and see who actually would pose a threat to children. There has been a little bit of rationality about it in the last year.I think there’s going to be some success on fighting back for people who were juveniles when they were added to the registry.
And they worry that somebody’s going to come and throw eggs at their house or throw beer cans at them or scream and yell at them.Any offender who has moved to New York from another state or country must register with the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services no later than 10 days after moving.There are three levels, based upon an offender's risk of committing another sex crime and harm to the community: Level 1 (low), Level 2 (moderate), and Level 3 (high).Also, most people on the registry have adult victims.It’s just all the rhetoric around the registry is about children.Some people have kids, and so they dread the other parents finding out. But then they’re in their 30s and they’re still on it because they’re subject to lifetime registration.
