The court shall remove the restriction on the dissemination of such registration information if, at any time, the court finds that public safety requires that such person's registration information be made available to the public or that a change of circumstances makes publication of such registration information no longer likely to reveal the identity of the victim within the community where the victim resides. Prior to ordering or removing the restriction on the dissemination of such person's registration information, the court shall consider any information or statements provided by the victim.

(b) Upon the conviction or finding of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect of any person of a [criminal offense against a victim who is a minor, a nonviolent sexual offense or a sexually violent offense] tier one offense, tier two offense or tier three offense, where the victim of such offense was, at the time of the offense, under eighteen years of age and related to such person within any of the degrees of kindred specified in section 46b-21, the court may order the Department of Public Safety to restrict the dissemination of the registration information to law enforcement purposes only and to not make such information available for public access, provided the court finds that dissemination of the registration information is not required for public safety and that publication of the registration information would be likely to reveal the identity of the victim within the community where the victim resides. The court shall remove the restriction on the dissemination of such registration information if, at any time, it finds that public safety requires that such person's registration information be made available to the public or that a change in circumstances makes publication of the registration information no longer likely to reveal the identity of the victim within the community where the victim resides.

(c) Any person who: (1) Has been convicted or found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect of a violation of subdivision (1) of subsection (a) of section 53a-71 [between October 1, 1988, and June 30, 1999,] and was under nineteen years of age and no more than four years older than the victim at the time of the offense, [;] or (2) has been convicted or found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect of a violation of subdivision (2) of subsection (a) of section 53a-73a [between October 1, 1988, and June 30, 1999; (3) has been convicted or found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect of a criminal offense against a victim who is a minor, a nonviolent sexual offense or a sexually violent offense, between October 1, 1988, and June 30, 1999, where the victim of such offense was, at the time of the offense, under eighteen years of age and related to such person within any of the degrees of kindred specified in section 46b-21; (4) has been convicted or found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect of a violation of section 53a-70b between October 1, 1988, and June 30, 1999; or (5) has been convicted or found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect of any crime between October 1, 1988, and September 30, 1998, which requires registration under sections 54-250 to 54-258a, inclusive, and (A) served no jail or prison time as a result of such conviction or finding of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect, (B) has not been subsequently convicted or found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect of any crime which would require registration under sections 54-250 to 54-258a, inclusive, and (C) has registered with the Department of Public Safety in accordance with sections 54-250 to 54-258a, inclusive;] if the victim was eighteen years of age or older at the time of the offense, may petition the court to order the Department of Public Safety to restrict the dissemination of the registration information to law enforcement purposes only and to not make such information available for public access. Any person who files such a petition shall, pursuant to subsection (b) of section 54-227, as amended by this act, notify the Office of Victim Services and the Victim Services Unit within the Department of Correction of the filing of such petition. The Office of Victim Services or the Victim Services Unit within the Department of Correction, or both, shall, pursuant to section 54-230, as amended by this act, or section 54-230a, as amended by this act, notify any victim who has requested notification pursuant to subsection (b) of section 54-228, as amended by this act, of the filing of such petition.

The record of the order and any activity of the court pertaining to the order shall be sealed from the public.

(e) The court may order the Department of Public Safety to restrict the dissemination of registration information from the public concerning a specific subsection or subdivision of a section of a statute when the publication of said subsection or subdivision would be likely to reveal the identity of the victim. The court may order the Department of Public Safety to disseminate registration information to the public on the registrant to include only the section of the statute without the specific subsection or subdivision.

Such policies and procedures shall provide that (1) an arrest warrant shall be sought for any registrant who violates registry requirements as specified in section 7 of this act and cannot be located, (2) the United States Marshals Service shall be notified of the existence of any such arrest warrant, and (3) any such arrest warrant shall be entered into the National Crime Information Center Wanted Person file. The Department of Public Safety shall develop and maintain software applications to allow local jurisdictions to effectively and efficiently track and manage local sexual offender registry programs.

During the period that such registration is under suspension, the department is not required to verify the address of the registrant [pursuant to subsection (c) of this section] and may withdraw the registration information from public access. Upon the release of the registrant from incarceration or civil commitment, the registrant becoming medically capable or the resumption of residency in this state by the registrant, the department shall reinstate the registration, redistribute the registration information in accordance with subsection (a) of this section and resume verifying the address of the registrant. [in accordance with subsection (c) of this section.] Suspension of registration shall not affect the date of expiration of the registration obligation of the registrant under section 2, 3 or 4 of this act or section [54-251, 54-252 or] 54-253, as amended by this act, or section 54-254, as amended by this act.
